PREPARING ROSLIN ORPHANAGE'S FARM LAND

It is not so easy to do farming as not only the finance factor is required but your time and energy to do the actual farming activities are badly needed. Preparing the ground itself is only one factor , other factors like making a good fence , tilting the soil and solving the water or irrigation are the deciding factors too. Making sure the plantation to be healthy we must manage the type and amount of fertilizer which will be used properly. Recently we did the soil tilting and making the fence at the same time while the rest comes later. For making the fence part, we need thousand trees as the length of the fence will be around 2000 meter for just one of the farming location for Roslin Orphanage. The fence is a life fence by means of using living trees. The trees of which being made as a fence will be very useful during the dry season as the leaves can be used to feed the animals like cows and goats. For the fence we are cutting down ( pruning)  branches of our own trees at a different locations and brought them to the farm. Cutting down or pruning trees for cooking woods is not being practiced at Roslin Orphanage , but cutting down trees for making a living fence is being done very often. The cutting down it self was not an easy job but because of being done together we did it at no time without any sign of tiredness . This is because we did it together gladly and because of our sense of belonging that has been planted and rooted in us.

 

We came by trucks to get the good branches

For making the fence usually we are using Amra Tree , Angsana and Gamal Tree

We are doing it together at our own phase

 

Our dinner time , all are the same and as when we are working , we are having our dinner together

 

It was taking us for days to do the 2000 meter of fencing 

The fence is required to prevent from animals like cow or goat going into the farm

Upon doing it , day time  and night time  it doesn't matter as it is for our own farm

Bringing God's given tractor to the farm

 

Starting to tilt the soil

We were taking turns to work on the tractor , day and night is not a problem as the tractor is able to do so
