In the garden #Uganda

This is Robert, on his morning commute, to his gardens near Najjembe in Uganda’s Mabira Rainforest. He’s got his briefcase, his snack, and he’s chatting on his phone. Greatest job in the world.

Here’s what else you might see in the garden:

Okay, enough about chicken shit. There’s other work to do:
