Precious water

Here are two shots of the flowing, life-giving water that is irrigating a new section of the farm. The water comes from a hand-dug well and is pumped out into earth canals to guarantee a decent harvest. Without the well and pump we'd be at the mercy of the weather. With it we look forward to healthy crops. The only downside is that the pump operates on fossil fuel (gas) but someday we hope to have a solar pumping station. Photo by Theo.

  1. Hi Father Marc.

    Just wanted you to know how much I appreciate the good work you do. (A member of the Ridgewood AM Rotary club, I've heard plenty about you!)

    FYI- we recently updated our website and included a description of Pwoje Espwa:
    Let us know if there's anything you'd like to add. (Like anything else, it's a work in progress.)

    Wishing you all a healthy and prosperous 2007 (with all the spaghetti your hearts desire)!
