From Seed to soup

by Rachel Prince

On Monday October 6th, 2014 we had a breakthrough moment here at Sibahle Community. It was the moment that our first home-grown spinach leaves were harvested and added to the daily meal. From seed to soup right on the grounds of the Tladi health clinic. 

Now after more bountiful rains and the full swing of summer our kitchen team "shops" for veggies every day by strolling out to the garden and harvesting fresh leaves of swiss chard, mustard greens, and parsley for the daily soups. Granted, our grocery store is still in short supply of some keys items such as beets, carrots, tomatoes and other crops that are still busy ripening on the vine or underground, but in time those too will be on offer.
