spring gathering in the forestgarden 16.-26.3.

General Discussion

Verden/Lower Sachsony

The spring is here and he invites us to spend a lot of time in the garden! We invite you to join the spring-gardening. There are plenty things to do. We are going to work together, nurture, plant, uproot, harvest… learn from each other, spend time in the group, discuss, cook, party and hang around. We are looking forward to meeting people from other gardening projekts as well as interested people without any knowledge, to meeting the ones we already know as well as new people!

From participants we request the following things *announce early and binding. There are only limited places. You can also take part only for a certain time of the gathering. If you’re interested, send a phone number for there’s an administrative point to talk about. *we wish a fee for the costs of the food (they’re gonna be low, there’s gonna be some dumpsterdiving and donations). The accomodation is going to be in heated rooms near the forestgarden. Nonetheless you need a car or a bike to be mobile. You need to bring your own weatherproof workcothes.

  • The gathering is a pro-feminist space. Everyone should be able to feel good on the camp and so should be save from violations of his or her personal borders. Everyone should be able to tinker with his or her own identity and shouldn’t be pushed into a certain one. So macho-behavior and homophobia would be out of place. For these things everybody should take responsibility.

Thanks for giving the GROW community the latest news from the Allmende Waldgarten; it's good to hear what you are doing and I hope that you can encourage everyone at the garden to join GROW directly in order to help us build the Europe wide citizen science Observatory. The easiest way to get involved in our citizen science projects is to register for one or more of the free online courses being run during 2018 by GROW in conjunction with Future Learn. The first is ‘Citizen Science: From Soil to Sky’ in which you’ll gather and analyse data to help understand your particular soil and what works for you, as well as contributing to a European-wide knowledge base. By also exploring regenerative practices such as polycultures, mulching and attracting pollinators, you’ll be able to grow better food while improving the soil for years to come.

We’ll help you build healthier soils, grow food more sustainably and better adapt to climate change. This is your chance to be part of a vibrant, inclusive community of growers across Europe learning with and from each other.

This course starts on 19 February. You can read more about it on our website under "Get Involved" and sign up here.
