P2017-0313barn-interior-900As spring emerges from a difficult winter, Wednesday work parties are again in full swing. The barn’s interior walls have now been constructed, and we are moving towards getting signed off on the building by the city and setting up our storage more permanently. Everything is out of the rented long-term storage unit, and now we want to move things currently residing in the houses and garages into the barn.

P2017-0315_forsythiagarden-600Volunteers also replaced a couple of lights on the path in the oak savannah, which is much appreciated by those who walk there at night.

The gardens are beginning to look like gardens, with blossoms appearing, the soil looking like it could be worked, and even some unexpected overwintered vegetables. Residents are gearing up to work their raised beds, and volunteers are coming forward to help with weeding of the common beds.

We have work parties most Wednesdays from 9am to 3:30pm, and there is plenty of work for people to do, inside and outside, light and heavy. Come for as much or little of the time as you wish. We have tools and gloves, but if you have your own, feel free to bring them. There is mid-day meditation in the zendo from 11:30am to 12:25pm, and you are welcome to join us. And if you are around at 12:30pm, lunch is provided.
