San Francisco Day School at Las Casas de la Selva – April 2014

Globalworks along with Chris Corrigan and his staff, brought the whole 8th Grade of San Francisco Day School, CA, to Puerto Rico. The group split into three teams and each team spent two and a half days at Las Casas de la Selva, helping on a variety of physically demanding tasks, such as building a concrete wall-overhang,  shoveling soil to replenish the organic gardens, hauling heavy rocks from the river to use as trail stabilizers, and pruning back overgrowth from trails. A super time with all the teams, 3t was chef and Andres and Norman were crew leaders. Thanks also to SFDS staff Michelle Phillips, Elise Holston, Steve Roberts, Marcella Anwandter and Loren Moye, San Fran Day School staff, and Globalworks leaders Chris Federer, Luiz Bertolo, and Scott Page.
