Zambia’s First Major Harvest

DIG’s Program Manager in Zambia, Catherine Magill has been a busy bee in the gardens. First harvests are coming in as the rainy season continues to bless the country with a long awaited drink. With a laugh and a curious attitude, participants are trying zucchini for the first time. They like it and sweet veggies are now disappearing off the vine.

All of these experiences both in the garden and in the kitchen are being evaluated to improve and further develop DIG’s “process”. We hope that by testing and more effectively capturing the system of our work we will be able to assist an increased number of communities looking to transform their lives and their bodies through DIG.
