The Lucas family
It was so great to have The Lucas family at Roslin from June 18th to June 25th 2016. All the way from Salem , Oregon , USA , The lucas family came to Roslin. On this trip , Mr Dennis Mathew Lucas came to Roslin accompanied by Mrs Tammy Marie Lucas , daughter Abigail Corrie Lucas , Elisabeth Grace Lucas and Olivia Eve Lucas . What a solid first class team indeed.
It was such a wonderful visit as they were adding up the needed man power to do so many things of at the orphanage and other Roslin’s venues, including the hardy routines of the day to day things at Roslin , some land clearing, paving the path at the orphanage and removing rocks.
Thank you very much to The Lucas family , with your participations the rocky soil at Roslin’s home stay has been made into a fantastic plating area and the colour has been changed with so much greenery.
The pictures below is the before and after the land clearing
from rock soil into a productive soil within 2 months
One of the most difficult part is to relocate these rocks
Tilting the soil must be done manually as the tractors will be damaged by the hidden rocks
By doing things together we can achieve more
Rice husks for making the special media for planting
All must work including Peggy
Some of the rocks are too big and we cannot remove them
TOGETHER WITH ALL CHILDREN ARE ALWAYS READY TO DO THE HARD WORK
PLANTING IS SO EXCITING
WE CAN HAVE NEW HOPES DAILY AND EAGERLY WANTED TO SEE NEW THINGS AS THE DAY IS PROGRESSING
