May, 14, 2013
we have been in ecuador for about a week now. So far it has been a good time. We arriver to Rio Muchacho farm and got a tour of the entire facility. The far belives in zero waste so every thing is used until it is gone. the river is teh main source of water for showers, laundry, and sinks. drinking water is colleced rain water which is then filterd.
We began our work on teh farm by hooking uo a drip system irrigation line. we also made many new garden bed by weeding, and turning teh soil. we added compost to enrich the soil and finally planted peppers, cucumbers, okra, and beans.  we worked in teh morning for a few hours and then break for lunch,  in the afternoon we work for a few more hours usually lighter work
