    Wonderful film and story. Never underestimate the power of planting, growing, harvesting, and all the sharing that goes with it!

    It was very poignant hearing Siyanda say people can change, be better, make an income, that anything is possible. It was very powerful knowing that this realization was from connecting with the earth. I loved that he was asked what his dream was.

    Phakamani is teaching youth how to be independent by learning the skill of growing. My heart swells to learn of his work.
