So work really took off today on the new and improved Growing Hope for Haiti Site!
Gerson and Heather rented a backhoe and Matt, a member of the volunteer team they have here working this week, drove it to clear a path around the four corners of what will be a home. He also cleared a spot for the latrine bases we framed up yesterday.
While Matt was driving and clearing, the rest of the gang used machetes to knock down an area of baby sugar cane plants. The terrain is very rough the way it is, because of the way they farm. The field is pretty much a massive spread of little mounds with plants growing on them.
