Join us for the second Work-Along Sunday at the TU/e Community Garden on 13 March 2016, from 10AM till 3PM.
It’s still very early in the season, but lots to do. And of course it’s great to catch up with old friends and meet new friends. Pot luck lunch, so please bring something to share at lunch. We will provide something hot to drink. Continue reading Work-Along Sunday 13 March→
On our first Work-Along Sunday we built the framework for our new greenhouse dome. A 5/8th 3v geodesic dome, with a radius of 2 meters. Height in the middle is almost 2.5 meters.
The dome will serve as nursery for young seedlings, a home for more sensitive subtropical species and shelter for us gardeners.
Still much to be done before it is finished, but we made an excellent start thanks to the help of Dennis, Harm, Inge and Leo.
We made a good start on clearing grass, laying cardboard and spreading woodchips. In the coming weeks wood chips can be used to lay out the pathways. Beds require a bit more attention: clear grass first, then fertilize, cover with cardboard and top off with wood chips.
We had a great lunch with hot home made vegan (as it turned out) pumpkin soup and great home made bread.
Join us next time on Sunday 13 March 2016 from 10AM till 3PM or anytime you like. The garden is always open and the weeks’ chores are published on our notice board in front of the garden (along De Lismortel on the TU/e Campus).
Please note that the second Free Lunch intervention – 24 November 2015, 12:45 till 13:15h – will be at Common Room Metaforum 0.09, TU/e Campus Eindhoven. Kindly hosted by international student association Cosmos.
