Kitchen Garden

Dear friends of HOPE.
I am glad to share this news with you. We had planned for a garden within the campus where we could grow vegetables for the school mid-day meal program. In the beginning of Feb'07 we began working on a small patch as a pilot project. It was Mr.Rajakumar (a multi-talented person) working as an admin.asst, who did all the hard work.

The land was tilled and soil loosened, then seeds of Beans, Brinjal, Ladies Finger and Tomato were sowed. As expected the plants have sprouted out and with much care and support we will soon have our home grown vegetable in the mid-day meal menu. Enjoy the pictures!
