Building a garden and courtyard in Cambodia

Besides helping build 22 homes in Cambodia, Adelle and I are helping construct a garden and courtyard around the community center. We're using the same bricks that the homes are made of and it is looking quite lovely.

The bricks are made primarily from the local soil mixed with a little cement and sand. Then, it's all mixed in a large rotary miner usually used to mix clay. Once mixed, it's poured into molds, dried, released from the mold and cured for 16 days.

Time is flying and we can't believe how much work is being done. Stay tuned to see the end result!
