News item posted on Wednesday, April, 9th filed under all news, Vegware Community Fund

UntitledThe land is still very wet on the farm and allotment areas with the poly tunnel still remaining underwater! But a drier area has been found to allow carrots, radish and turnip to be sown.

The working relationship is ever improving with our TRA members and is paying dividends in many ways. One of the working team is now a staff member of the school having been encouraged to apply for a recent vacancy.

The “Herb Garden” revamp is near complete with new border frames, woodchip paths and planted up with various herbs and vegetables.

Community Fund – Fundacion Fauna de la Amazonia – March Update

News item posted on Wednesday, April, 2nd filed under all news, Vegware Community Fund

green and brown poison dart frog view 1The latest from Colonia 24 de mayo, Canton Mera, Pastaza where the sun shines brightly and the rain rains heavily, and where ‘winter’ (the rainy season) is when everything grows even faster.

 

 

Some of the beautiful Paradise Tanagers have been seen close to the sleeping/eating area, though too briefly to photograph! Just the same, it is amazing to see them there even for this short period! Other flying visitors include a daily fly-past of flocks of parrots, and regularly the white hawks are seen being chased by tiny, protective parents! The Saddleback Tamarin Monkeys have again been seen close by and the Common Aquatic Caecilian spotted in ‘Prawn World’. Some of the lizards living near the sleeping accommodation are becoming even more used to human presence and are walking around people’s feet! And also it would appear that whenever no-one is actually sleeping in the bodega, bats are making use of the building!
