Just back from a long day with Lansbury Gardeners. Was awake at 5am thinking about things I thought I had forgotten and in Tesco by 7.30am getting various snacks to keep us going. Them Gordon and I went and picked up the cordless screwdrivers from HSS and came back and got set up from 9am...a long day.
Of the 16 raised beds - 14 have been built. 7 beds are in the garden and partially filled with soil.
Tomorrow morning Friday 21st January the final two beds will be built, all the beds will be put in the garden and the rest of the soil moved into them from the remaining bags. Next week we will get more soil to top them up.
If you can come down and help for any amount of time Friday morning you would be very welcome! We aim to be finished (certainly in the hall) by lunchtime so the Bingo can come in at 1.30. We should be able to finish the job.
Thanks to residents Rahima, Amina, June, Frances, Mary, Gordon and Shumi who all came and helped today. A big thanks also go to Agim, Thomas, Ken, Simon, Fintan and Ian from Poplar HARCA who helped with this massive job.
See you tomorrow - I will be at the hall from around 9am. Louise
