Time for a garden update. not mine int his case, but the garden project I volunteer at on Friday morning called The Peoples Garden. they have a blog too.
It’s a great community project, with heritage fruit trees, a sensory garden, a medicinal herb garden, wind turbine, compost loo, poly tunnel and community plots – I have one – its £10 a year for a plot about 5 foot square, fabulous if like me you live in a terraced house.
I wish I could spend more time there, but work prevents me. I love my job, but I’m sad not to have more time for other things. Anyway, back to the garden. they have been constructing a willow igloo, which has been christened the “wigloo”.
We all thought that was a great word!
The main dome had already been constructed and we were making a small children’s entrance and a larger adult entrance.
This meant preparing the coppiced willow, making a hole in the ground with a stake and then inserting the willow, stamping down round it. Uprights to make the arches then more willow put in in and woven at an angle to provide strength.
