Planning for Future Growth

Plans are being crafted to reorganize the use of existing land at St. Paul's School in Petit Trou de Nippes in order to expand the agricultureal learning and animal husbandry program, create a space for a soccer field, and plant up to 860 moringa and lime trees. 

The project will include a solar-powered well and irrigation system to water the school garden during the dry season, which can last up to half of the year. The project also includes building a strong, block wall to help protect the garden from neighboring cattle and goats who climb, go under or bust through weak fencing. These changes will allow the school agriculture program to continue year round, and exponentially increase yeilds. 

With the new well as the water source for the garden, the existing small rain catchment can serve other purposes, namely the animals and new orchards. The animal husbandry program plans to double their stock, giving students the opportunity to learn skills like how to vaccinate and breed. The catchment will also water around 860 sapplings on campus. In time, the trees will not only offset carbon for the organization and beautify the campus, but will also provide a revanue source for the school and an economic boost for the community. 

Pending budget, these plans could be underway as soon as the Spring of 2020.
