Our new meeting shed!
James and his band of willing volunteers have been working hard on our new meeting shed. It's a wooden structure with a raised floor and veranda at the front. You can see the roofing fabric, which is recycled rubber, similar to a pond liner. There will be two opening skylights in the roof and windows at either end. We are also hoping to get doors with windows for the front, which will be opened up in hot weather. The rest of the outside will be clad with cedar paneling. We are still looking for funding for cladding on the inside of the walls. We are hoping to insulate it really well to reduce the need for heating, however we will probably need a wood burning stove as well.
Once the building is complete, it will be used for visiting school groups and regular gardeners when the weather is inclement. We are also discussing having a workshop once a month.
