The winter is the ideal time to do some repair works. Our new volunteer Line is already busy with some paint jobs, as you can see in the picture. And a whole lot is coming ahead! We need to pickle wood, varnish, and prepare the whole property for next summer.
A lot of things to do at our little paradise. As you might’ve read in our last newsletter, we’ve also done some gardening in the past year, this is already paying off as well. This year we have stockpiled wood from our trees. This we can already start to use for our wood burners, as the summer was warm and dry enough.
This summer, one of our volunteers has put together a new recycling system for Maravilhas. He has made waste bins and covered them with bamboo, this to make sure that it’s got a nice coating. At Maravilhas we already do some things to contribute to waste management. What some people don’t know is that we separate the waste, like paper, glass, and plastic. This we take to the village where we put them in the right dumpster. The fruit and vegetable waste, we put in our compost bins. When this is ready, we spread this on the land again. This is how we give back to nature.
Besides that we’ve also got new fencing at the caravans. They all have now a bamboo fence, first of all to create some shade for the sun. And secondly, to create some extra privacy for our guests.
