New “Living Fence” Around School & Church

Wilto has been busy with his team of villagers constructing a fence around the school and church.   I had never seen this kind of fence before until I visited Haiti in 2011.  Basically, straight tree branches are “planted” in the ground side by side and they eventually take root, begin growing and become a “living fence.”

So not only secure but looks great, too!  I’ll post some photos once it’s complete.  Here’s part of the fence near the storage building.
