Haha Food 'n Stuff.
A full week and no new blog updates!? That's so unlike me! Let me fix that.
Last Monday I headed down to La Colmena and met up with Maggie and her VAC, Elijah, and Mario to visit one of the tourist attractions in our area--Salto Cristal. This place is absolutely incredible!
But again, totally worth it! The water was so cold and refreshing.
In other news, I'm still plugging away at my fence. I have one side left to do, and then I'll be able to double-dig, create my tablons, and then plant! I'm excited to get the garden going! Very soon after finishing the fence I plan on installing a water line so that the garden is easier to water.
I'm also in the process of starting my Community Needs Assessment, which is a document that I create for my community as a means of identifying potential projects and to bring to light the present resources that already exist in the community. I feel like my NRCS training has set me up well for that, as I know where to look for natural resources in soil, water, air, plants, animals, and humans (oh, and now plus energy, right?). I'm excited to get going on doing my interviews and stuff because I feel like it will also help give me direction on what I might be working on for the next couple of years. A rough draft is due to my program director in Asuncion at the end of April.
And lastly, here's a random video of me cooking for the first time in my house. I've had it saved for a while but never posted it. Nothing fancy.
