Yesterday we dropped off some grass and plants at a local village home where seven children live. The ground is hard and unpleasant for the children to play. We would like to help make the garden a little more comfortable and attractive for the children to enjoy.
The back of their garden
This is Elizabeth and her sister. Elizabeth, along with her elder brothers and sisters often come to visit our farm because we have a beautiful play area for the children to have fun. They enjoy swimming in our pool and this has helped with their confidence since most Dominican’s don’t know how to swim.
We brought them coconuts, palms, banana palms and other plants. Luis in the red shirt is the eldest brother that lives in the local village house, he helps me with my horses. Anes and Raphael are wonderful Haitian workers that live on our farm.
Some fat pigs slipping and sliding in the thick clay mud just off the road. There were about 20 of them, mostly piglets hiding in the bushes. These were lucky pigs since most of the pigs are kept in tiny cages just big enough for them to turn around. My children were amused.
