This week in Sen Sok the Community First team came to fix the greenhouse that shelters our first family unit aquaponics system. Due to heavy rains, the original frame and screws bent under the weight of the water. Thanks to our generous donors we were able to purchase an arch welding kit to build a stronger structure to house our system.
It’s always a beautiful day of team building when the weather is 30 degrees Celsius and the humidity being up to 70%. With Pierre off to gather supplies, the rest of the team was able to deconstruct the greenhouse and take down all the broken beams. Next on the list was to weld the new roof pieces together. Our master craftsman, Romain, was able to find his groove and finished fusing all the beams for the roof by the end of the afternoon. It’s never an easy task working out in the villages in the hot sun, but our conversation lifted spirits and our team work kept us moving forward.
Keep an eye out for our post next week as we look forward to finishing up the roof and finally adding fish to our system!
