Thanks to lovely wwoof´ers in 2014

The “garden year” starts in March, the first woof´ers arrive. Of corse, during the winter there has been som evaluation and planning activity, but the practical activities start i March. Well, it can be later according to weather circumstances, but anyway this year Mare from Japan arrived on March 6 th and the weather was just wonderful for planting trees and  mulching (we got 48 small bales of hay, that was just going to rot on the field). We also got hold of a lot of branches from fir tree for the ericaceous bed and we rinsed loads of roots from the nettles, tidied up the glassroom and started repotting and sowing.

At the end of March Jacob from Denmark  arrived. Jacob was our first long term woof´er and voluntary garden leader.

With him came at times Elvira from Spain. I cannot tell you all the things we did while Jacob was with us, it was just everything. Even dancing!

Jeannie and Garry from Fejø were also part of the “summer team”, but unfortunately I do not have photos of them  :-(

In July we held a couple of weeks with no wwoof´ers, no guests and no other activities than a Tai Chi course and the Classic Musik festival –

Soon much help, voluntary work and gift economy make this garden real. It unfolds, slowly but steadily, step by step, giving us and letting us share the singing of the heart as we plan, develop and maintain.
