Pines Calyx and volunteers



the venue for the living roofs conference i attended last week. Beautiful green building made from rammed chalk walls with this amazing timbral domed roof. I was away attending a conference there whilst our lovely volunteers, Miki and Gil were working away on the garden here. We have had a sudden spell of people getting incontact, interested in either volunteering or wanting to know more about co-ops in general. its been really great to meet some people that way, it always re-energises the co-op when we do it.

So I am looking forward to Renie and Gaz coming next month, December volunteers. - it is making us all feel more confident about taking on more here. Like doing an amazing eco refurb of our outbuilding, i have been wanting to do that for years now.

Wow. This is such an exciting site. I want to know more about the path that took your here. I really liked the photos of music-making.

hi there Crayons, thanks for the comment and interest... interesting question you raise.. might take me a while to answer it fully! but i shall think about it a bit. I came across permaculture design and sustainable farming in Zimbabwe and was greatly inspired by the possibilities of the whole thing an what people where doing there. I have just tried to apply those ideas and aspirations to the situation here.
