The Conservancy has also commissioned a short documentary film that showcases the projects currently underway in the village.

With winter around the corner, now would be a good time to stock up on firewood. If you would like to place an order and have it delivered to your farm, please contact Abie on 076 6289579.
That’s all for now. Watch this space!
