You guys all know that PAF basically started with planting fruit trees and handing thm out to people in need. Of course back then we set up a greenhouse to protect the saplings. This one was, how can I say…quite improvised and by far too small for our needs.
So one of our major goals for 2018 was to get a better and bigger greenhouse, and have it close to PAF Center.
All that is easier said than done. A lot of research was needed on how to construct the new one, what kind of shade netting to get, what kind of poles etc. … Wesley and the guys have been running up and down to get the necessary info and samples of the materials.
So now the construction of our new PAF greenhouse has started. This time it is supposed to be much longer lasting and more professional.
That’s why we had our personal super pro advicers around at all times:
As usual we used our Zambian ways of doing things. Lets say you wanna bend a pole…well, we have been using a tree to do so:
Or drilling a whole into one of the poles…easy with the right equipment. We only had a hammer:
Or lets see how we cut the poles:
After all that it took a massive amount of hard work and even more teamwork. Everybody helped cementing the foundations of the poles, puzzling all the pieces together and last but not least painting the poles in a stylish green and grey colour.
The only thing missing now is the shade netting. We will soon update you on this matter. Pinky Promise 😉
