It’s about time I add a blog to my blogroll. Sheesh. Shana’s Aunt Marg and Uncle Jake Hoogland have been in Bolivia for over 3 years. They are living there and working with the Quechua Indians. They are there for the people, living simply and helping in all kinds of areas. Jake owned Majak Gardens greenhouses in Central Alberta and has an extensive knowledge of plants and all things botanical. He’s putting that to good use by finding what kinds of plants will grow best for the people there – for food and profit. They built a community hall and are teaching courses on all kinds of things from farming to health care. They’ve also set up some microcredit programs that offers small loans to the locals for necessary purchases.
Great stuff! Keep up the great work guys.
