The Garden is going well!
The Future Centre Trust’s last Saturday in the garden was so successful I just wanted to let you all know how well the garden is going and invite you to our next garden day this Saturday the 28th of July. Julia, Paula and Lorraine have done such a great job so far. They have developed the banana circle, developed a list of plants and trees on site, worked with a landscape architect to create drawings for the garden, developed a veggie plant list for us to procure and helped the FCT find buyers for our produce.
This weekend we will be further developing the beds and mulching as well as planting our new veggie seedlings. As part of our research into organic and Permaculture methods we will be conducting a study on what works to keep away the snails. Lorraine will be using copper wire to keep the snails away, this will be our experimental group, while we have a regular controlled bed to see if the copper wire solution works. additionally, we will be employing some other methods to keep the snails away, if you have any ideas please share them with us.
Please join us in the garden this Saturday the 28th of July from 7:30am to 11am. Please bring your hats, water and garden tools with you if you have them.
Looking forward to seeing you all in the garden.
Your supportive and ever uplifting friend.
