We finally had the planting day for one of the Techno Park companies as well as some other planting purchases that were made. This was combined with a day where about 20-30 University of Stellenbosch students came to help build, plant, and dig at our Kayamandi site.

We ended up planting about 30 Spekboom trees to create a sort of garden perimeter in the middle of the sites. In the middle is a huge tree that was left in the middle and will look really great when it is summer here and the plants start blooming.
There has also been an increase in sales from the Techno Park promotional campaign which is great. We've sold about 75 trees at this point and its fantastic to see this business come into a revenue earning state.
Last week was focused on building and creation of the other space we have in the Kayamandi area known as the corridor. This consisted of one day of me and another girl cleaning out a building and then one day painting the space with the help of other inters - still a lot of work left but a really good start!

As a second highlight from Friday - a team of interns and I got the chance to see a traditional Xhosa show with singing, dancing, and dinner called Amazink in Kayamandi later that night. It was an amazing show and to top it off one of our Food Pods growers is the manager and another the chef for the show. :)
