"Ask not what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive...then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

Plant Shopping

A series of tanks for raising Tilapia
Poinsettia Plants - they need to be watered every hour

Weeding the Oak Saplings
Pine Saplings
Harvested Millet - to be used as seeds for other farms in Haiti

Egg laying in progress
Eucalyptus - Good for Mosquito Repellent!

Corn husks with the composted soil it creates just beyond
Two friends invited us to go to a plant store on Saturday.  What a great surprise!  The "plant store" was actually a fully functioning farm complete with fish ponds, egg laying/chick raising, crops including corn, millet, onions, and nursery plants for personal purchase.  They also start pine and oak tree saplings for reforestation efforts.  Very impressive!
