May was a very productive month at Sycamore Commons. The garden is abundant with colourful fragrant flowers, aromatic herbs, luscious fruit, and buzzing bees. There were lots of strawberries, bundles of sage, and a few mushrooms. With plenty more goodies to come.
Earlier in the month, Chuck built this beautiful arbour for us to sit under and enjoy the garden, and, of course, the garden’s strawberries.
On Saturday, May 31, a dozen of us, the young and young at heart, got together for a few hours of weeding, strawberry eating, and general good fun.
Join us on Saturday June 28, from 1 pm until about 4, for more garden enjoyment, and maybe a little work. We will continue to have work/play parties on the last Saturday of the month, throughout the growing season.
Also coming up, July 23 to 27, we will be having a natural building course, with a focus on cob. While we learn, we’ll be building a bus stop shelter and sharing station. The bust stop area design, is part of the overall garden design that has been developed during the past two permaculture design courses. It’s exciting to see our designs taking shape. It is also gratifying to see more of the community using the space. For more information on the natural building course check out the facebook event page.
