Last weekend was a scorcher, but the sweat and sunburn was worth it 🙂  A small group of us spent the last few days in Miramar, Costa Rica, fencing off the small piece of land that was donated by a local woman, Gretel.  We’ll be using it to plant the trees from our upcoming 100 Biofuel Trees in 100 Days campaign in April and we needed the fence to keep her horses from stepping on the baby plants.

Camping is the order of the day for this part of the trip.

After a tough two days of working in the 90F sun, we were luckily to have a local man stop by and show us how to harvest natural honey.

We had a fun and productive weekend and now the land ready for planting! Thanks to all of you that donated so we could buy the materials needed to get this far.

Until next time,
