Our Gardens are Growing, Fencing, Plus a New Driveway
It’s been a while since we posted new information about SEA construction and its (almost) completion. Rest assured that we have still been hard at work to ensure an absolutely beautiful eco building.
In addition to adding fencing to protect our plantings (the goats and peacocks were eating everything!) and a new driveway, we have also completed plumbing and electrical work-the things that you do not see, yet are vital to the functionality of the building.
With these tasks completed, the walls are getting ready to be closed and painted. The floor tiles will be installed. The SEA construction project should be done by December 31, 2016, barring no big surprises.
New driveway and fencing:
In addition, we have been busy with our eco suites, booking them throughout the rest of this year and next year, too. The eco suites are part of Sisterhood Agenda’s social enterprise solution for growth and sustainability.
With the consistent rains falling on St. John this season, our cistern is overflowing and our plants have experienced great growth spurts. Most of the fencing is temporary until the plantings grow strong and tall. We have not put everything in the ground yet because some of the plants are too young and we still need to clear some space.
Some of the plantings in our organic fruit, vegetable, herb, and ornamental gardens include:
- Noni Bush
- Moringa Tree
- Island Thyme
- Sugar Cane
- Bird of Paradise
- Green onions
- Frangipani aka Plumeria
- Ginger Thomas
We are getting some banana trees soon-yah! In addition, we are introducing organic ground covering and also some crushed stone.
Oh, yes… I made a bench and Princess kitty loves it.
With continued blessings on this fertile land, we move forward…
