We're making more fertiliser! A mix of whey, molasses, milk, amino acids, minerals, and vitamins... this is microbiology in action. As Cata tells the team: these microorganisms are offering their life, to give more life!
This fertiliser will eventually be used to regenerate the soil where our delicious coffee grows.

Last night Robbie Francis Watene had the pleasure of presenting at the Rototuna Rotary Club in Hamilton. The club has supported TLF for several years now. We are so fortunate to be surrounded by such kind and generous Rotarians who believe whole heartedly in the motto of 'service above self'.
On that note... did you know that TLF was born in Kirikiriroa (Hamilton)? All of our co-founders have strong ties to the Waikato, and have been working on an exciting new project to promote training and employment opportunities for disabled Kiwis in the region. Stay tuned for more updates coming soon!

Follow the recent 7.4 earthquake in Oaxaca, our team sprung into action to assist their neighbours. Thanks to the generous donations from supporters in Aotearoa New Zealand, the team were able to purchase building supplies to help fix structural damage. Here they are delivering materials to local families, which will be used to reconstruct homes. The local children were very happy to help too!
Thank you for your ongoing support. Without your donations, we could not do what we do. To donate to TLF, head to: www.thelucyfoundation.com/donate/
