Charles Hurd, volunteer from New York, working on a nursery project of a special tree, locally known as the soapnut tree, whose seed pods can be used for laundry or shampoo. It's great when things work together like this. With these soapnuts we don't have to worry about pollution or buying biodegradable detergent. Charles is also working on an irrigation plan for the farm. He's extended his stay with us to do this and it is much, much appreciated.
