Construction on the EcoPark continues today. Working only by hand, today they crew worked on moving soil to clear out the compost area, built part of a wall to close this area off, and later began clearing a path for a gate to be built on the edge of the property. The crew is being assisted by Jonas, our intern from Germany. While supervising the construction crew he also is helping to design plans for the park. We are currently sketching a draft of what the park will look like when its completed. This sketch will help people see the potential of the park. Tomorrow our construction crew will continue preparing the composting site. The park will be ready for tours by mid-November. Later, we will continue adding waste management facilities. We anticipate that we will complete construction on the EcoPark by March 2017.
We also had Mark, a member of the Zero Waste committee, come visit the park for the first time. He will be assisting us during the upcoming months of the project with fundraising ideas and solidifying an outline for the park. In about two weeks we will begin another crowdfunding campaign seeking donations to continue building our beautiful EcoPark. Your donations will support us in educating local businesses on the environment and waste management. The end goal of this fundraising is to provide a place for people to learn about their own environment. Hopefully we will be able to teach many children about environmental sustainability. Donations will allow us to teach local governments about protecting the environment. This task will help keep our oceans beautiful. Further, with your help we can have “Zero Waste” going to the oceans. Please keep your eyes open for the beginning of this campaign!
