The staff of KHD have been very productive over the wet season. Every thing grows at an accelerated pace and its a big job just controlling the growth on each block. We have also been preparing soil and planting shrubs, palms and flowering specimens. We are particularly proud of all the new coconut trees. They dropped from a large tree in our yard. We left them there ‘to sprout” ( under the watchful eyes of a statue that seems to be hatching them, photo below) and then put them in bags to gain strength over the dry season. We now have now over 100 trees from that single tree. Exciting for us as in New Zealand we don’t have coconut trees. The areas either side of where the road has been concreted, were given a good dose of top soil, and now the plants are thriving. Here are some photos to show you all. People have asked why we are spending so much time and money on plants. We think it is a great investment. In years to come when the people living on KHD are eating fresh organic Coconuts, Mangoes, Bananas, Avocado, Mulberry, Cashews and other fruits, when they are looking at butterfly’s and hearing the bird life, all around them: Looking at large trees like Norfolk Palms, Then they will know why.
