February 2018

Work projects continued in February, including the retrieval of materials from a local building site to finish the greenhouse. We fixed the fence wall to shelter the wood-burner, which became a necessity for the site to work in winter. We celebrated the new stove by baking bananas and drinking a new batch of Tepache.

There were gaps in the snow to give the wildlife a chance.

With the decision to help the Dovehouse Community Gardens in Lichfield, parties of volunteers were organised for the 14th and 25th of February. A large tarpaulin was put down to warm the ground and to weaken the Horsetail, these areas will later form part of the communal bed. Pallets, kindly provided by Tippers, were positioned to create compost beds.
