community meeting 
Alex B arrived at Bupaluka when it was heavily raining . This affected the meeting since everyone had to stay in doors.The rain was much to the point people could not walk through it. It was also difficult for the meeting to take place since they always meet under a tree that made it hard for people to attend. Alex first took shelter in a car waiting for the rain to stop so that some people may come for the meeting. After some time when the rain started lowering down,Moses the secretary of the group came to Alex since he stays near the meeting place.He confirmed to Alex B that the rain started in the morning. When it was coming to 3 o’clock Alex B asked Moses to take him to the group garden project.Though it was drizzling ,they decided to go to the garden where some few members joined them . The group had planted soybeans and cassava in their demonstration garden. Alex found when the crops has started germinating. Alex B noted that they did not put in terraces for flooding water that ended up in their garden.He devised those few members present to make the demonstration garden good ready for others to learn from .It was already past three o’clock,Alex B left for Jinja.
