Hard Work!

For about a year we've been trying to decide what to do with this crazy mud pit in the middle of our building.

We've tossed around a lot of ideas, planted things, built some things, but nothing has worked so far.

This is less than ideal and the mud continues to cause problems with the drainage out of the middle of the building.

So yesterday we decided to take advantage of the broken tiles that have come from our broken down roof. 
Everyone at the building worked hard today, hauling tiles from upstairs, smashing them into smaller pieces, and spreading them around the mud pit.

The result is a much prettier, less muddy, workable space. 
We still have some detail work to do around the outside and we're eager for a big rain to wash the broken roof tiles clean and then bake down in the sun, but we were all pleased with the results.

Soon we hope to take out the concrete "fireplaces" and build them an outdoor stove.

This week we are working on getting an aquaponics vegetable and fish farm started.  Keep checking back for pictures and updates from that project and others that are happening every day at Breaking Chains!
