Much of the garden and art installations are finished now, trees and plants to give away to those who appear early are ready, (plant more trees is our slogan) months of effort.... Major finishing touches like the Crumpled Great White Cloud of Drafts - all clean found scrap paper - does not go up until Saturday. Anyone who would be able to assist us is most welcome, delicious food and drink for all helpers. From 10am is fine. People who just want to sit around and talk about helping are also welcome.
