The day is set, the time is set, now it is time for you to set your minds for a
FIRST MEETING FOR OUR OWN ECOLOGICAL SCHOOL GARDEN,
Wednesday, 25th of November, at 17.00 in TAMK at B6-33
Absolutely everyone is welcome, you can also bring friends with you if you want, this is going to be fun!
What we are going to do is to plan a school garden where we students, especially the ENVEs but I don't see a reason why others cannot join, will have the chance to grow our very own, ecologically correct food, where we can spend some time outside, where we can try out everything we want (first ideas are rainwater harvesting system, own ecological fertilizer, permaculture, garden on the roof...), where we can relax and follow our roots and dig in the mud.
The end of the ready packed carrots and salads has come! No imported food anymore, no unknown chemicals in our meals!
This first meeting will be for gathering ideas, sharing knowledge, and setting up a first timeplan and a strategy. I am more than willing to put lots of energy into this project, but I cannot do this by myself, so I need every single one of you!
The planning period will be during the winter so that we can start in springtime to get into action.
So put your rubberboots on and get ready for next Wednesday!
I cannot wait to hear what ideas you all have!
