Looking for illustrated instructions, to make into posters, on how to grow certain vegetables (beans, peas, tomatoes, onions, spinach, carrots, potatoes, chillis etc). This is for a very poor community of elderly people who are mostly illiterate, hence the need for these to be in picture form. We have plant donations and we have raised money to buy implements like shovels, watering cans, etc but we need to leave some sort of reference for the folks so that the vegetable garden is sustainable. We are going to the old age home in 2 weeks, so time is of the essence, as I will need to get the ‘posters’ printed before then. We don’t have the money in the budget to pay for actual posters, but I’m sure there must be something along these lines on the internet. Can anyone help or point me in the right direction? Thanks

Thanks. I've seen posters that help to identify vegetables, birds, trees, chillis etc, but nothing showing how to propogate veggies, stage by stage from seed to fruit. Still looking.... Thanks

Nope, afraid not. But we went ahead and planted the veggie patch. Was a mega-satisfying experience!! We'll be going back to help out with some other stuff, so I'm still looking for the posters/illustrations.

Thanks
