Dirty hands, happy hearts!

Invitation to a working weekend – Saturday 27 & Sunday 28 October 2012

Dear friends of Dorpsstraat!

Applying ‘trass-kalk’ to the strawbales on the outside

As you can see, things are progressing with our new living space. We are finishing off the outside walls, and this weekend it will be time to start on the inside walls.

We will be working with a mix of lime plaster and straw to create a flat surface on the walls (right now they are quite bumpy because of the straw bales). It’ll be dirty but contemplative and grounding work – you can expect the usual good conversation and yummy home-grown food.

You are welcome on either Saturday or Sunday (or both!) any time from 10am onwards. Please bring old clothes and sturdy outdoor footwear, plus (washable) working gloves if you have them. And please let us know if you’re planning to join us (by commenting on this blog or on our Friends of Dorpsstraat facebook page) so we can cater for food.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
