Mahanaim, Haiti Aquaponics Part 4

Today was very hot…the sun was as intense as I have ever felt and I paid the price for trying to withstand it for too long. Several weak attacks made me concerned that I may be coming down with fever, possibly malaria. When the evening came and temperatures dropped I began to feel much better. Besides this the project is moving along nicely.

The construction team finished laying the rebar for the concrete foundations where the growing beds will be placed. I was impressed with the amount of detail the construction crew uses in every step of this project. The holes are perfectly uniform and the rebar configuration is squared to perfection. This will by far by the strongest aquaponic system I have ever been a part of building. Tomorrow we will procure the PVC pipe and start to dig the trenches where the PVC pipe will be buried. Once the pipe is in place the crew will begin to pour the concrete foundations.
