Food Forest work bees ~ please join us!

Let’s clean up the Food Forest this Saturday September 8th from 1-3pm. We’ll tidy up, organize our shed, top up mulch, dream about a water fountain and talk about fencing for 2019. If you’d like to be part of this gathering, please join us! We’ll have snacks & tools on hand, but please bring your water bottle

It’s time for Fall Fairfield- September 22nd from 1-6pm in Porter Park. This event is a community favourite- you won’t want to miss it. This year we”ll be hosting a booth and hopefully tours of the food forest. If you’d like to volunteer for a portion of this event please get in touch! We’ll be looking for volunteers to hang out at our booth from 1-2pm, 2-3pm, 3-5pm and 4-5pm.

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.
