Hi everyone! The work party at Elmira's today went wonderfully.
About eight people showed up, and we spent the afternoon weeding,
double-digging, tidying up the growing beds, chasing chickens, and
soaking up the sunshine together. As usual, it was great fun spending
time in the garden with fellow Occupiers, and we got quite a bit
This Friday, March 30th, I am going to have all-day access to a rental
pick-up truck. I'm using the truck until 3 PM to pick up supplies for
an indoor grey-water system/art installation that I and some friends
are building at PSU, and after that I'll be able to use it to drop off
compost at any of our garden sites. This will likely be the day that
I visit the three gardens we haven't assessed yet, including the
Shire, and I'll have compost with me when I visit to drop off at each
site. If anyone wants to be a part of this endeavor, there's going to
be a lot of driving around and some labor shoveling the compost into
and out of the truck, and the whole adventure may take several hours,
but it will be a lot of fun, and the perfect opportunity to take a
tour of many of our wonderful Occupy Portland Gardens!
There's also supposed to be a work party on Friday, and there will be
more to come on the location and details of that event.
