To discussion how they can care like weeding and how they will harvest and store the soybeans and cassava. Mutooto Saul the chairperson of the group reported as the demonstration group garden has some challenges.He mention of some members did not participated in the fast weeding. They had person commitment that cold not allow them to attend.He added that fast spraying was done and crops were doing good. Alex B advised them to love and consider the demonstration group garden as uniting factor and learning project. He told them always respond whoever they are called to work in the garden. The money for pesticides to spray should always be available to deal with the pests that might destroy their crops. He also advised them to not leave many stems of cassava to avoid crowding the garden. The issue of how they will harvest fast the soybeans,members were told to think about it. He even asked them to start thinking how they will store and sale their soybeans.
