The clear up is over and people have started work on our temporary structure. We need to put something up quick to have somewhere dry and warm before the weather turns cold. Unfortunately our half built rammed chalk food larder (see top picture) has had to be buried alive while people pick axed and flattened a large area of chalk next to the old shed. We laid down scaff board for supporting walls while we try to even up the ground.

The support we have been receiving has truly been phenomenal. Unable to sustain such back-breaking work without coffee we’ve had to borrow two cafeterias but apart from that we have nearly replaced all the kitchen equipment and have been receiving and chasing up offers of wood. Financial donations and plans for benefit gigs and roast dinners also continue to roll in

The best way you can help us financially is to take out a standing order. We will soon launching the ‘Friends of the Forest Garden’ for those that do just that. Being a ‘Friend’ will entitle you to a yearly special event for your family, VIP treatment at events (probably an extra bit of cheese topping on your outdoor oven baked pizza) and regular mailings of blog updates, reports and other news of interest.
