Yesterday, our nine remaining HESE members trickled into the Lusaka airport one at a time to start the second round of HESE in Zambia. By the time everyone arrived, we had enough time to grab dinner in town and rest up for a long day of travel. Today, the greenhouse team headed to Choma to check out the first completed greenhouse, taking photos for reference and quality control purposes. We picked up some groceries and other supplies and then piled into the car with our driver, Marvin to head to Zimba. The three other students had ridden directly to Zimba on the bus (with everyone’s luggage in tow), where we all met up later at a mission house. As we got situated here, we discussed our future plans both in Zimba and at the other sites as well. Tomorrow we’ll be firming up our research plans and considering alternate business models for the two pilot greenhouses that have yet to be constructed. Everyone is beat from the long day on the road and excited to really get started!
