I love growing and harvesting food. I love preserving food, so when we visit villages and learn about their processes I come home inspired and ready to do more.
Each village prepares a short presentation to show us what they have accomplished over the past year. I love learning about the food they grow, harvest and preserve.
This village was using a new technique to remove the maize kernels. I was amazed at how quickly they could remove the kernels with their thumbs. I tried and struggled with the process. Then they showed us how much faster it was to use the tool they had made from PVC pipe and specifically spaced screws. This little innovation was proving to be very helpful in their process of preserving the maize. I love learning new things, but even more than that, I love feeling the excitement and energy they have as they share what they have learned.
