It has almost been three weeks since I have been here which is absolutely crazy to think about, I feel like I have been here for at least two months. Malawi is an absolutely beautiful country with beautiful loving people. These first two weeks I have spent my time working mainly with the chickens and the medicine garden which seems to be my focus for the next few months. Work here is flexible no day is the same, and the staff is laid back and fun to hang out with. Since a picture is worth a thousand words I figured I would give you a glimpse into my new life through a few pictures (taken by a friend here...sadly I haven't taken any pictures yet=/)

My simple little room which I love. The windows allow me to hear all the animals noises at night.. especially the hyenas!

The views while running! 

 My walk to church... and to think you have to pay to cross that bridge.. I would almost rather swim.

 This picture is for my brother.. enoooooo

The courtyard, my room is the door on the right=]

 Harvesting Amarynth seeds

 The entertainment of the centre..kittens. 

Early morning chores, making IPM (Pest management spray)

Getting the vegetable boxes ready for the CSA

The commercial garden

Lunch celebration with the staff

Finally a picture of all the staff together!


  1. I'm glad it's going well and that it's legit. I want to hear more about it. Skype soon?

  2. These pictures are amazing!!! Out of curiousity, how much do you pay to cross the bridge??

  3. Love, love, love this! I'm coming. See you soon.
