We will not be holding a working this Sunday.
Our main focus at the moment is with engineering the compressed earth brick machine, it is quite a large complex project and is requiring our full attention. We will take some photos of the progress and post them on Facebook.
We are also planing the pond, pond fencing and looking at extending the garden areas in the coming months.
This Sunday we will again attempt to winnow and process all the seed we collected. (last working bee was too cold and windy)
We will meet at the UCG site at 10am, collect some more seeds and head on up to The Little Ladybird Nursery to do the winnowing on there machine.
This Sunday we will be collecting seeds from the gardens at the UCG site. We will then head to The Little Ladybird Nursery to winnow all the seeds we collected at the last working bee, and prepare them for storage.
Just a quick note, we are regularly updating the notice board at the UCG site with working bee dates and details.
