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.
