We would love to have you at our Food Forest Celebration tomorrow 6 November 2016 1-4pm

Dear All, 

the Eastern Suburbs Permaculture Group & our Food Forest Ashburton Group
are celebrating the Winton Road Food Forest in Ashburton
that we have been creating since 2011,
planting since 2012,
and extending in 2016.
We are celebrating especially all the hard work this winter
that went into planting 13 trees by hand tools into
rocky clay
13  times we dug sixty by sixty centimetres –
and we shifted a mountain of soil (12 metres) and wood chips –
that took 4 weekends with about 20 people.
Great community effort!
Now we are back to planting little plants and taking out weeds
and enjoying the place and some produce.
After working bees we have lunch together at the new shelter.
1pm lunch followed by
talk & chats about community and the food forest (at 2pm)
walk & talk through the forest
enjoying the place and the people
WHEN 1-4pm
DATE   6 November 2016
WHERE 38 Winton Road Ashburton, in the park opposite Pitt Street
– yourself, family and friends
– ideas about growing community, volunteers, users and more
– a plate of food to share
– spare plants and produce to swap or get donations for
– donation for the forest (if you can and want to support us this way)

  1. Hi Petra, recently saw you and the food forest late at night on Vasilies garden.. Forgive the spelling.  I will try to make it there tomorrow.  Either way congratulations on all the good work to you and the rest of the team. Gabrielle
