ABCs and Rice

Empowering the poor, through education and community support,
to break the cycle of poverty.


Full Belly Farm,

Over the wall the farm is developing rapidly. The poor soil has been enriched with compost and lots of various veggies planted. So far there are mung beans, cucumbers, morning glory, spring onions, kale, lettuce and corn!

There are 2 banana circles with banana plants on the outer ring and all sorts of other plants, such as ginger, growing inside. The speed of growth is phenomenal, and Jack Howard, Son Chea, and the forever smiling Mr Ty are working exceptionally hard to move towards our goal of producing as much of the food we need for Breakfast Club as possible. With the food bill (excluding rice) running at some $250 per month (excluding rice), this has the potential to eliviate food costs in the future.

The next step is ducks and chickens, as well as preparing the fish ponds for the farming of tilapia, hopefully in the first few months of 2013.

Having worked on the farm for just 2 weeks this May with Andy and Aggie I can really see the hard work that has gone into and is needed to complete this amazing project.
