Thank you for your support for the Retreat -- work is progressing superbly... Although the torrential rain has converted the site into an exciting mud-run.
Here's an update on recent progress :
1. Fundraising for the water tank is zoooming on. Only $362 needed. Pretty amazing - over $4000 has been gifted. WOW.
2. A smart vegetable patch has been installed, retained and packed in with top soil. This week will involve getting paths and anti-rabbit mesh installed. Bring it on!
3. Plumbing and hard graft around the first water tank has seen the installation of a solar pump.... YAY -- now we just need a little solar energy to try it out :)
4. Earthbag wall -- is being prepared for ferrocementing this week. It's going to look GREAT!
5. Planting along the boundaries completed, and a couple of gorgeous flowerbeds dug in, and filled with topsoil - ready for planting up this week.
Check out the photos, and keep sharing the story. For every "like" our Facebook page gets, an awesome donor gives $1 to the project.
Come by and check it out, we'd love to see you.
