A recycle store: work in progress
We have started to build a recycle store behind the container sheds!
How many of us find it hard to walk past a skip full of good doors and windows, bricks and timber? And how many of us bring stuff on site that we think we might use some day, but end up with broken windows and rotting timber taking up precious growing space on our plots?
And how many of us buy new timber for sheds and raised beds because we don’t have time to go searching through skips for what we need?
Please bring pallets, good timber, windows, doors, bricks, paving stones and drainpipes to the recycling store. When we want to build or repair sheds and beds, we can just take what we need from the store.
People came along and worked out what we could do with what we had
They collected scaffold poles from Plot 4 & from the compost area by Plot 10b.
We started by experimenting with a structure that starts by fixing poles to the top of the containers.
Others helped to set up areas in and around the community shed for food, drink, pumpkin carving, scarecrow, making, apple bobbing and other fun activities.
