Lots of Autumn projects started.
Tom & digger kindly cleared an area big enough to take the 10m x 5m marquee.
The new ‘Clearing’ is now ready to be sown with grass and meadow seed in the Spring.
No one realised the side benefit ; a beautiful view of the sunsets from the workshop.
Also started is work on the natural soil floor for the workshop. Great fun digging the clay from the site, then slipping and sliding around in wellies getting it flat enough for the kitchen. Linseed and possibly a bit of bees wax to seal it later.
Give us an email if you want to do some sliding too firstname.lastname@example.org but most Mondays there is a group of us at the Mill.
Even started the Dovehouse Community Gardens project in Lichfield by advising on the plans to the new Committee. Tony one of our trustees will be on the committee to feed back any help they may need.
The first picture is of Sarah & Claire ready for action followed by the first bucket of weeds! Great start – long way to go!
£1500 has been kindly promised by Cambridge Water Company to Forest Harvest towards a wildlife friendly water collecting pond at Dovehouse through their Pebble Fund.
Another great start.
Can’t let November go without mentioning the beautiful weather again and the colours of Autumn at the Mill.
The water lily survived until the beginning of the month and also thriving is the Mistletoe on the Bramley.
If you would like to join us in making some seasonal decorations from the natural resources in the woods, we are running a half day workshop on Thursday 21st December, 10:00am to 12:30pm, cake and a hot drink provided.
See below some of the beautiful decorations made at a previous workshop.
Lots of decorations to take home, all for a donation to our cause, £15.00 recommended.
Let us know beforehand if you would like a vegan lunch for an extra £10.00?
