The Eco build is GO! Yup we’ve REALLY started now, drainage for the foundations put in and last Wednesday the garden was a hive of activity as our Wednesday regulars and some lovely new faces started stuffing the tires that will raise our floor off the ground. It was a great day! A huge omelette was shared, and glory be, suntan lotion was necessary!! Nico has also assembled a team of ace volunteers who are beavering away on other days.
Pretty exciting,eh? Wish you could get involved but can’t make it down on a Wednesday, eh?… No worries!! We’ll be doing the most exciting bit and raising the straw bale walls on the sunny weekend April 26th/27th 10-4 so come and get involved there’ll be food but bring more!
And the next big date for the diary is May 10th 1-4 our Big Spring Fair. Yup it’s that time again. Soooo people your community garden needs you!! This is our biggest fundraising event of the year please please volunteer to beforehand to put up posters, deliver flyers on your street, bake us a cake, donate plants. And come help on the day with set up or tidy up on the day, or give an hour doing something super fun on the day to make it special!! We’ll have a plant sale, cake stall, free kids activities’ – badge making, clay monster sculpting, pond dipping and facepainting and fabulous live music and fire up the frog for pizzas BUT only if you guys help make it happen!!
