|Dick Chapin and his foundation work with hundreds of groups around the world who want to use this simple technology. Others discover his work and want to help by raising funds. In 2005 we at Bergen Water Gardens and Nursery wanted to contribute to this effort and created the Hyacinth Project. For every $3.00 water hyacinth sold at Bergen in the 2005 season, $1.50 was donated to Chapin Living Waters, a total of $1,774. Proceeds of sales of bucket kits were also donated. Our efforts will purchase and deliver over 100 bucket kits to Malawi.|

|Sold to missionary and other humanitarian groups at the subsidized cost of $US7 each, the Chapin Bucket Irrigation Kit (families supply their own buckets) appears to be a major, effective new tool for enabling the poor of the world to help feed themselves.
The kits were developed by Chapin Watermatics' founder, Dick Chapin, who has founded Chapin Third World Products to promote humanitarian, reliable Third World vegetable production with this simple, inexpensive bucket irrigation system.
