Amazing news from FEED’s recent trip to Nepal!

Namaste everyone!!

All three of us are back in Australia after an amazing trip!

We couldn’t be happier with the progress made with the partnership with the Phungmoche Monastery and greenhouse project work. We are proud to announce that we had numerous great meetings with everyone in the local community and left Nepal with concrete plans on constructing not 1, but now 2 greenhouses, which both sides will collaborate on. Photos to follow.

The addition of 2 greenhouses won’t solve, but will significantly reduce food shortages faced during the winter months and issues of malnutrition. The greenhouses will also act as a practical learning tool for the agriculture elective course at the school.

With the warm welcome by the Head Lama at Phungmoche and everyone in Junbesi, the time spent exceeded our expectations and has inspired us ever more. We look forward to working together in the future.

I have a feeling there might be a April 2013 trip coming up for FEED 🙂

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask us!!

And let the countdown to Nepal begin!!

Hi everyone!

Please don’t take our silence as a disappearance, because although we might have been away from the web, we’ve been working dutifully on our upcoming trip to Nepal.

Instead of going to build, we return to Nepal to revisit the greenhouse plans with the Phungmoche Monastery to make sure everything is appropriate, on-track and that everyone is fully committed to the realisation of the greenhouse.

We will be in Nepal for just under 3 weeks and will be crossing paths with the 2012 RMIT Nepal Study Tour participants.

Stay tuned to further updates and if you have any questions feel free to ask us!

Lastly, we have a new addition on our page and that is a PayPal donate button! No donation is too small and I’ll donations will go 100% to funding the greenhouse and the development of FEED.

Thanks for all your support!!!
