Progress

Making progress

Miguel and Andi have achieved a lot in the last months and were temporarily supported by Jens, who stayed on the farm for a few weeks in Senegal at the beginning of the year. The infrastructure of the farm has been significantly improved: in the meantime, a powerful irrigation system has been installed, the area is fenced in, a firebreak has been created all around and the construction of a house has begun, which is now (mid-April) almost finished. And of course: planting has continued with already impressive results in terms of soil improvement and plant stock. Please have a look at Miguel’s video update:

 

First Planting

About a year ago we started to reclaim the land. Old bushes and trees were trimmed, the organic material was mulched and turned into compost. The first raised beds were created on a partial area. Meanwhile the property is fenced in and a borehole for the solar water pump was drilled (manually!).

 

The first plantings have just been made. A large number of different plants were planted, including bananas, papayas, figs, pomegranates, avocado, grapefruit, guava, medronho, coconut, passion fruit, legumes, eucalyptus, veronia, moringa and many more.
