The recent report from the Duteraninkunga Association in Nyange inspired me to pull up some photos from my last visit in January 2012. This past winter, I had the pleasure of working with this association. Over the past year, they have worked very hard to grow a kitchen garden on site at the Nyange clinic and this winter, they expanded to include the cultivation of farmland in the community as well. The lessons learned and successes they have had with the kitchen garden will certainly help them as they continue to expand their project.
