It's summer at CAARI and excavation teams are at work across the island.  CAARI is buzzing with students and researchers and the sun is glinting on the newly finished roof of the CAARI's underground library extension. We invite all of CAARI's friends to join us in rebuilding the garden that will lie above the library extension.

Primary construction of the underground library extension is nearly complete with the roof now being constructed.  With the hole covered, we're finalizing the plans for the restoration of the garden which will be planted over and around the roof.   The garden is a defining component of CAARI  a setting for chatting and snoozing, hospitality and outdoor parties, a place of refreshment for residents, and a  source of pleasure to all who come .
