When you don't have a well you walk to the river with your gallon containers!
Harvested corn from the gardens is then ground up to be used like rice at NEHLM.
Took 8 of the boys over to the 3 Acres plant tomato seeds, compost and water the garden. Teaching the importance mulching and composting will set us up with long term benefits.
Congo beans are harvested so we turned the stalks into tomato stakes!
The Budke's came for a visit from Alaska. They helped plant trees, avocado seeds and and built the gate for the 3 Acres! Thanks you!
Teaching the kids the importance of composting will be a process. We are starting with gathering paper to add to the pits.
Fatima Roland (in red) with Vanity 4 Humanity purchased the 3 acres of land we are developing in Haiti. While Dr Roland was at the hospital we were able to get Fatima as well as Rubio from Divino Nino over for a visit to Pastor Daniel's and the 3 acres to see all the progress. We are so thankful for their support with agriculture and sponsorship of the children at Pastor Daniel's.
Chef Rubio from Rubio's Restaurant in NYC and the founder of DIVINO NINO came down to help organize a medical team with Vanity 4 Humanity. While here he blessed the 50 residents and staff of a local seniors home in Ouanaminthe to a wonderful meal! Rubio and Divino Nino help countless children in the Domincan Republic and Haiti with life saving surgeries each year.
Dr. Donald Roland, his wife Fatima along with a group of doctors and technicians came down to Ouanaminthe to help. In 3 days they were able to do 20 + surgeries. They evaluated over 130 patients and began a list of patients to see on the next trip down! BLESSED by their work!
Gary is doing a great job building beds. The soil on the 3 acres varies from sandy to dark, black rich soil. We started with the darkest soil to build beds for planting and starting trees. So far we have an almond bed, avacado, chaine, moringa and 3 vegetable beds. One of the beds is for Gary to grow food for his family. We'll keep you updated on the progress!
