Friends of Dorpsstraat 136

Open day on Sunday 4 December from 10.30-17.00

Dear friends

The time has come at last for us to plant the coppicing shrubs around the perimeter of our land. We cordially invite you to join us for a day of fresh air, good company, meaningful work and conversation and… Chris’s cooking!!

We plan to start at around 10.30 and put in a few hours of work before lunch, then continue outdoors until about 16.00-17.00.

Our task will be to plant 50-60 little bushes along the sides of the property. This will involve digging the holes, adding some compost, putting cardboard around the base and topping with a layer of woodchips. And there are plenty of other jobs to do…

What to bring:

  • warm working clothes
  • stout outdoor shoes/boots (and warm socks!)
  • working gloves if you have them (we can provide some!)
  • a spade, if you have one!

Where to come: Dorpsstraat 136, 3470 Ransberg

We are looking forward to welcoming you and having a good time together.

With love

Helen, Ria & Chris

    It was a great day and Sonia’s husband, with his garden expertise, was a great help in digging the 60 holes! We had a great time and did a really good job. Helen will post pictures later I guess, as she has a busy week!
