Work party
In September, the Ecuador project team headed to Bua to oversee implementation of a bank of composting toilets at the Abraham Calazacon school.  Finding a lack of perforated pipe, a work party was convened to manufacture it by hand.  Many willing and curious hands joined the team during school breaks.  Read more about the Bua project and the September trip here.

Drip Irrigation
In mid-September, the Growing Gardens project team headed to Growing Gardens headquarters in the Hollywood District to test low-pressure irrigation technologies.  The team used the rain barrels that are set to be used for the project, and measured flowrates at variable water depths to help guide future design efforts.
