A gift for the gardeners
May 24 2013

Gardeners at the Dako Garden in Victoria Falls have had their work made a little easier with the installation of a reservoir designed to bring water closer to the garden site.  

Community volunteers joined project staff to construct the tank.  All was going well until the pipes were installed.  The workers waited for the reservoir to fill up...and they waited...and waited.  Nothing.  Fortunately, Hans, a volunteer who manages a scientific centre back in his native Holland, came up with a simple, but highly effective idea to solve the problem.  Building a funnel at the other end of the pipe allowed the reservoir tank to quickly fill with water.  Success!  

Once the structure was finished, the hard-working volunteers got to put the finishing touches to it; their names etched into the wet cement as a lasting reminder of their efforts to help the garden project.
