Today we immediately went to the future CIRENAS campus to plant seeds for trees that will help conserve water on the campus and produce food. We filled over 2,500 bags with dirt and seeds—a really impressive number that surpassed the previous group! After finishing our work, we returned to the beach and then our dorms to complete some other work that needed to be done for tomorrow’s projects. We peeled apart more coconuts for the fibers, which are excellent water absorbers, for the garden we are planting at the school in Quebradas de Nando. The remaining group of kayakers went out in the mangroves while others surfed. We then painted a beautiful driftwood sign to leave behind at CIRENAS as a Concord Academy legacy. We then concluded the day with a bonfire and smores under the stars.
