A Little Gardening on Ebeye
Last weekend, D spent a morning on Ebeye helping out the Canvasback team working on Ebeye to install a public garden at the hospital. They've had a lot of success with grow-box gardens on Majuro- most of the produce eaten at the Diabetes Wellness Center there was grown in the Canvasback gardens- and I'm hopeful that they can transfer that success to Ebeye. Diabetes has had a devastating effect on our family so I'll support almost any effort to help people here avoid it.
There is a training room at the hotel where they give cooking demonstrations and serve healthy meals. Not only is eating healthy difficult here because of the cost of fresh produce but if you didn't grow up eating that kind of food, you're not going to know how to cook it or how to make it taste good.
A bunch of dirt to be moved and a bunch of kids standing around watching? D put two and two together and used his Marshallese language skills to put together this fire line to get it moved.
