preparations for a recycled garden retreat

I am going to share the updates here. A huge “THANK YOU!” to everyone who contributed to the conceptualisation and making of this garden. These precious students have decided to build the garden retreat from different waste materials of the university. First step is clean up of the area! Go ahead guys! Weather is looking good for a gardening session Saturday 9am! There are stillbeds to prepare for tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant and pepper. We haven’t planted corn and sunflower seeds yet!!!DSC_0095

spring is calling!

after the long and freezing winter of Central Anatolia now time has come to organize and plant our garden. We do not encounter the difficulties of last year, as most of them are familiar and expected, and solutions are ready. This is called experience I think.

I see a more autonomous group this year, compared to last year’s. They undertake more responsibilities, such as finding seedlings, seeds, getting help from some organizations. All deserve a certificate of appreciation for what they have done until now.  However it is also clear that the team will consist of basically five-seven people. One of my students, Mustafa Motuk, and his family company Güneş Tarım is providing us with the drip irrigation. Lots of thanks! As I will be heading for the garden soon, I do not have time to write for every photo, just have a look how they are glad to be there!! (I think!)
