Open work weekend

August 2, 3, 4 August 2013

raspberriesThe raspberry canes are as high as an elephant’s eye, and bearing fruit twice daily. Everything is green and lush – a real pleasure to behold. And there are a couple of pieces of work we need to complete that call for more arms and legs than three women can provide.

The party wall with our neighbour Pedro needs a couple of coats of paint – Guido, our friendly eco-builder has lent us the scaffolding to be able to do it, but we need some (wo)manpower to help us get it done (perhaps including putting up the scaffolding).

And there are some other jobs – like roofing our woodshed, transporting some old wooden beams, harvesting vegetables, etc. – that would welcome some co-creative energy.

As always, Chrisje will be transforming the fruits of the garden into delicious fuel for our labours, and there will be friendship and good conversation as we work.

You are welcome to join us

on Friday 2 August, Saturday 3 August and/or Sunday 3 August

from 10 am until tired, fed up or dark!

For those who want to make a holiday of it and stay for one or both nights, we do have some mattresses, and there’s plenty of space for pitching tents.

Please let us know if you are coming so we can cater. Either send a mail to Ria or Helen or post a comment here.

Bring working gloves (we do have some though!), old clothes and stout outdoor shoes/boots. If it’s raining that weekend, please check with us before setting off, because we might need to shift to another weekend!

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