Additonal rooms at the eco-farm

Works have started at the eco-farm to build a family chalet with two bedrooms, a living room,dining and kitchen areas and one toilet added to offer a reasonably comfortable stay at the farm for visitors and friends. As at now, physical progress is approximately 40 %. I will try to capture various angles and perspectives of the chalet for all to see soon. One thing for sure, the landscaping around the chalet is proceeding at a much faster rate than the building renovation/construction works.

Zone A Planting Layout


Eco-farm Master Zoning



Our eco-farm is currently divided in eight zones (A-H). An additional area of 4 acres has been cleared but not zoned yet because no planting activity has been caried out. Depending on the planning layout, further zoning is expected to be carried out by next month the latest. This is due to the prevalent 'fine' weather for planting, i.e drier days with intermittent rains in the nights.

Our story ...goes on ...in 3rd Edition.

I can go back to blogging now , after I opened a new goggle account. Apparently, I found tremendous problems before due to my yahoo account for accessing google's Blogger.
Just a tiny note: up till this moment my eco-blogging is now four months old.
