Trainers from our partner organization participated in a two-day workshop on gardening and planting vegetables with Reiner Köhler in Maun.
Reiner, a native of Germany who grew up in South Africa and who worked for several years as a consultant for the German Development Service (DED) in Botswana, has accompanied many horticulture projects, e.g. for women's self-help groups, and trained them in setting up small vegetable farms for income generation and food production.
He showed the young dedicated trainers of FEYS very clearly many practical tips and handles how to plant seeds, stake out beds and grow tree seedlings with simple tools and recycled materials.
The trainers were able to put these skills into practice immediately in the Junior Ranger project garden and in the gardens at the schools.
Many thanks Reiner for the fantastic workshop and the great support!
