slide3

Volcanic winds prevent most plants from growing.

Walls keep people out of the orphanage and goats in.

slide4

The orphanage has a small goat herd that they hope to improve.

The goal is for the goats to benefit both the children and the surrounding community.

slide6

We started the project by building a fence to keep the goats out.

Once we got about six inches down we had to use picks to break up the clay.

slide8

Once the fence was put up we had to treat it with termite deterrent because they said wood only lasts about three years if not treated properly.

slide9

We removed the weeds on our first day at the site so that they wouldn’t be as much of a problem when we wanted to plant.

slide13

At the top of the site we built rows and at the bottom we built mounds for different plant varieties.

slide17

The termites had eaten the base of the playground so we dug it up and a group the next week replaced it.

slide18

The water supply at the site isn’t always steady so they collect rain water for showers and it can also be used for the garden when it doesn’t rain for a while.

slide27

The mountains are steep. We climbed to the top of a ridge and it dropped off to more rain forest on the other side.
