In his container gardening survey (2010) Patrick HARRY describes the important role of this gardening type in the combat of desertification, hunger and poverty in Malawi (see one of the former postings this month on the desertification blog: http://desertification.wordpress.com).
This week we received some additional nice photos, showing successes booked when growing melons and pumpkins in costless plastic containers (bottles or plastic bags that otherwise would be littered). Seeds of vegetables and tropical fruits were sent to Patrick through our action “Seeds for Food” (see www.seedsforfood.org).
Patrick is really the founder of container gardening in Malawi. He deserves our full support and that of his Government and Aid Organizations.
