After postponing our first day due to rain many people arrived to take part in the next earthbag day – and it turned out to be beautiful! Lots of parents and children from Hamilton PS turned up to take part in the day, in which we achieved much more than anyone thought possible. We were also lucky to have our eager Brazilian volunteer Camilo return to make another appearance which was very welcome.
This wall is to be used to frame the garden bed in the courtyard of the school and also provide seating. We also built an arch into the wall which will be decorated later with a mural displaying the schools’ name. There was a lot of suspense during assembly a few days later when we removed the arch form in front of all the students – and the rammed earth arch didn’t fall down! Rendering day pics to follow.
