Full Belly Farm has enjoyed abundant harvests lately. Apart from the usual long beans and leafy greens, we have been experimenting with gourd and eggplant with great success! The chickens are breeding well and enjoying a special vegie patch in their coop for them to feast on once the vegies have grown. A lot of work has been done by volunteers on flood mitigation work by securing the beds with retaining walls and we will certainly notice the difference when wet season has finished and our beds have not washed away. But by far the most exciting outcome has been the first harvests of fish! The tilapia and ch’pin have been steadily growing over the last 6 months - as we ironed out some minor problems - and now they are being served up as part of the Breakfast Club meal twice a week. The children especially love Fish Bobo – Khmer rice porridge cooked with pak choy and morning glory from the farm. A highly nutritious and exceptionally delicious way to start the day.
