Last 4th of August year 2012 was the groundbreaking of KTEP’S second gardening project with the presence of Founders Dr. Reinhold and Mrs. Aurora Kugel and the Rotary Club South Davao Officials and members. We were all gathered together for some information especially about what is best for this new project. From there, we proceeded to harvesting crops like ampalaya, pechay and cauliflower.
All KTEP and RC South Davao members took a post while KTEP Founder Dr. Reinhold Kugel and the RCSD President Mr. Scott Nimmo made the actual shovel. The main purpose of this gardening project is to produce fresh organic vegetables which are later being sold to the market and restaurants around Toril and Davao. It is also meant as a training ground for the people in the villages of Toril to learn how to produce healthy vegetables right there around their cottages and little gardens.
This project was made possible through the generous support of Rotary Club Friedrichshafen-Tettnang and a Matching Grant of Rotary International. The buying of the lot was financed by generous donations of some Rotarian friends of Friedrichshafen-Tettnang, by the Alfons Hörmann – Stiftung, Dieter Baur, Thomas Mentzel and the Narrenverein Kressbronn.
We are looking forward for the success of this another Organic Vegetable Farming.
