Phase 5: Planting• After fertilizing, plowing, raking, breaking up sod and leveling, more organic material was spread on the land in order to proceed with the plantings and transplants of various crops.• In addition, holes were dug for the shade and fruit trees that will continue to form segments of planting.
Final Finishing of Ponds• Beause of rain, the ponds began to accumulate water before they were completely finished.• To finish them, a human chain was formed in which all cooperated to extract water.• Then the rain damage to the wall was repaired and a protective plastic was installed to protect the lining.• Next the impermeable liner was installed.• The pond was then filled to mold the plastic.• Finally, a channel was constructed to secure the liner.
