Women must be involved-we went to British Petroleum.
The women wanted to work land so we showed B.P. the plot and the water sourde which was a
trickle of water. B.P. bought a generator and World Vision built a reservoir and theg women
were able to water the garden. They grew sunflowers and produced 34, 65kg, bags which were
sold for 22 rand/bag. The seeds were used to make cooking oil--to make a success of this
kind of enterprise we need to set up marketing cooperatives. Now we are going to grow a
proper vegetable garden.
When the women have a vegetable garden they produce money that goes 1) for food, 2) to repair
machines 3) to buy more seeds.
We have 4 plots now, all in Laboa. 1 has a working well and has water; 1 is at a school and
has a bore hole and fenced area* 2 are in the bush, Brekenbridge, have no water so there is
no production.
