T'was a blustery evening down at Cody Dock. Six of us were on tree planting duties; Downy Birch, Goat Wilow and Wild Cherry. We planted them all, hopefully a large percentage live on, greening up the surrounding area, providing a habitat for local birds, insects and more. A nice thing to have a hand in, that permanence, or more precisely longevity, it's satisfying.
Asides from that, big up Theo Lee, hopefully you enjoyed that and your budding permaculture garden goes well - look forward to having you back. Everyone else, it was wicked to see you.
With group runs coming back in June, and the participant cap removed from missions...we'll be seeing a whole lot more of each other. That wasn't supposed to read like a threat, more of an exciting window into the summer. Should be glorious.
sign up here for next week's session
Till next time,
The lovely Basia would like your help in the docks with some tree -planting.
(There is also a completely separate sanding and painting task - happening in the docks at the same time, check listings)
Have a goody
A continuation of last weeks tasks with more planting of trees and sanding of the dock side railing.
We again split into two teams
Callum,Helen and I planted Blackthorn this evening. These and the other trees we have planted will spend 6 months maturing in the posts before being replanted in and around Cody Dock ensuring home and food for the local wildlife.
The dock area is continually being repaired and updated and part of this is the updating of the dock railing. Kevin,Rosa,Paul and Hilary headed dockside to sand and then paint the railing but sadly a drop in temperature caused issues with the paint so extra sanding was completed.
We will be back again for more planting and painting
