Recycled tire benches in the park!

In order to make the park more useful for the community, we decided to install a few benches in the shady areas to encourage people to sit, meet, talk, and exchange ideas. We were inspired by the benches made out of recycled tires at Haiti Communitere, a community resource center in Port au Prince, and decided to replicate them here. Winter Luc, a community leader and school director from Bwa Nef, Cite Soleil, has experience building these benches and came up to St Raphael to help us out! So, with a truck-full of used tires dropped off from Cap Haitian, several planks of wood, a few buckets of paint, and a handful of volunteers, we now have two wonderful sets of tire benches under the choukoun and the bayawon tree.
