Borehole

At last, we have water on site. The borehole has been drilled, and what a relief at 60 ft deep,  lots of water was found. Giving us a plentiful supply for all our needs, once we can get it up out the hole. so, we still need to raise funds to finish the job.

Now we know the flow rate and depth, we can source the pump and solar system to run it. Then we need a nice new big water tank to store this lovely clean water. Need to get this sorted in the next month, ready for taking on staff and the new growing season ahead.
