Safi is Swahili for clean. On March 1 we had our first Usafi (cleanliness) day in Bombo! With majembe (hoes) in hand and smiles on our faces, we were ready to get to work. All of our building is officially finished, so it was about time we transformed this construction site into our work site.
After 4 hours of work in the hot sun, we finally finished. We weeded and cleared all of the land surrounding our buildings, as well as our plot to farm on. We organized the storage unit and moved all of our supplies into it. We leveled and swept the inside of the solar dryer, removing all of the garlic remnants. We even prepped the land to plant garlic again. The site looks professional, presentable, and ready for growing/drying/storing/meeting.
