Food Forest work bees ~ please join us!
Saturday, June 9th, 10am-noon ~ Please join us Saturday, June 9th for a work party at the Fairfield Food Forest. We’ll be gathering from 10-12 pm to weed, paint, water and possibly mow. We’ll provide snack & tools- please bring your water bottle and sun protection.
We are looking for help with a few specific tasks and wanted to spread the word. Here is a short description of these- please get in touch if you can help out!
1) Step repair- anybody experienced with masonry? Scotty has identified a repair job at the steps. These steps are a wonderful feature of the garden and need a little mortar and TLC.
2) Signage– we’re hoping to have a template designed that is 1/2 of the size of the current cage signs. This will make them less vulnerable in the wind, and would reduce the cost of laminating. We’re going to try a UV protected stronger lamination this time around. If you have graphic design skills and would be willing to take this on, I can provide you with files to get the project started! This could be perfect for a student project as well.
Please contact the group of you’re interested in volunteering or have any questions or concerns.
