Progress in Photos

 

Days are full and busy around here. I want to share a series of photos to keep you abreast on all the happenings.

Handmade lamps

There are so many little details that go into pulling this project together. When we were able to hang the beautiful handmade lamps (made by volunteers) it was the finishing touches to the community hall that made it come together!

 

Sunsets on the finca

Sunsets on the finca

February is a pretty spectacular month on the “finca”. Every night, the sunset is more beautiful than the last. The winds can be really intense and occasionally a freak rainstorm descends on us.

Birthday celebrations

Birthday celebrations

Greg and I have both celebrated our birthdays in the last month. During my birthday, we had friends from Vancouver come for a visit and for Greg’s birthday we went to Lake Atitlan.

 

 

Worms!

Worms!

We have worms! We obtained our worms from Byoearth-a Guatemalan NGO started by a young Guatemalan women. She and her team came and gave all of us a workshop on composting and caring for our new “babies”.

    Hi Heather,

    What an incredible accomplishment!
    The workers, whether they be paid or volunteer, have gone well beyond the call of duty to perform amazing feats of creativity on the property.
    It’s such a heartwarming exhibition of compassion and kindness, and I am so proud to be a member of the loving group of people creating Project Somos Children’s Village.

    Can’t wait to get back to the finca.
    Gin
