Team 209 : Global Volunteers Costa Rica at local highschool

Our team starts the day by digging posts to replace at the new greenhouse site. This new construction will house growth of the reforestation trees (planted at Colegio site and the Santa Elena Reserve) and hydroponic vegetable garden.

Here Ella , Igor and agricultural teacher Daniel measure the plastic ceiling on the basketball court.

Tomorrow the structure will start coming up, but making cheese will be on the agenda by request.

“Here come the Russians” is our affectionate team name.

Ella and husband Leonid, defected from the USSR in the 90’s and made a life for themselves in the USA as distinguished physicians. They traveled to Costa Rica with younger son Igor to offer him some “perspective” since Igor attends a private military school and has the benefit of many luxuries.

Team Leader is quite proud of the first day’s work! Good Job Global Volunteers!
