New Trees & Lots of Pods
What a farm! These photos taken during a routine visit to Sumange's farm on March 26 show very healthy new cocoa trees, that have well established root systems and will soon go through a big growth spurt and begin to flower (and subsequently fruit). These new trees were planted back in May 2013 as a part of your program sponsorship back and are thriving!
The remainder of Sumange's farm is looking amazing with lots of Cocoa Pods visible in the trees and thousands of flowers waiting to turn into Cocoa Pods. It is very clear by these pictures that there will be a significant improvement on his annual harvest compared to last year.
The once shy and unhappy Sumange has grown into a confident and smiling man who is definitly on the right path to be a sustainable and sucessful cocoa farmer. This was only made possible through your kindness in sponsoring a Cocoa Care program to give Sumange & Salsia a helping hand they desperately needed.
