Three months later we can see the artichoke garden as beautiful as never! At the beginning of the summer and depending of the weather we could have the first harvest. The farmers made Bokashi compost (organic) and are using it to provide nutrients for the crop. We would need 1800 meter of pipe to get the water to the area of the community house. As a sustainable project, we are signing a contract with a supplier who is going to buy the production to the community.
It is amazing to follow the evolution of this project since the end of 2010 and our contribution to this community. We keep working together as always!
Last July, the Art for Community travelled out to Taphin Village, 20km outside Sapa in Northern Vietnam. They held the community Art class at the “Red Dream” Community House! Our friend Pete Wilkes from TET Lifestyle Collection and Bridget organize this amazing workshop. More than 100 Red Dzao children had an extraordinary experience and the chance to draw together! Inspired by their drawings, Bridget has created a collection of prints and postcards that are being sold to provide a sustainable income for the schools. You can find these drawings and more amazing pice of arts at the Sapa Festival of teh Arts 2014.
Thank you very much!
Red Dream team is really proud! The villagers in Ta Phin harvested 130 kg of artichoke leaf at the Community House’s Garden!
This is going to be an extra source of income for this community!
