This picture shows a Ju/’hoansi man from the Tsumkwe East area at a village called Eagle Post. With the water supply that the community members get from the boreholes, they are able to make small gardens which provide them with some nutrients. They are able to plant vegetables such as carrots, onions, tomatoes and cabbages.
