Work Day June 2 2012

June 2, 2012

With a plan to follow, the work commenced!

About 15 people showed up to contribute energy and elbow grease this afternoon.

After marking which walls would remain and which would need to be removed, trimwork and doors were removed for cleaning and re-installation or donation to the Habitat for Humanity Reuse Store.

Ceiling panels were removed to be pressure washed and then freshly painted. Ductwork was cleaned.

The sign was set up on the front window with the help of a Level App on an I-phone. Then the artist got to work,  with some assistance.

Finally, the part everyone enjoys, some walls came down.















And it was agreed, it was all good!

    I give a big tip of the hat to everyone who participated in birthing the Wild Ramp! Good job!

    Living in Florida, we can fudge a bit more on our planting season, therefor we find fresh veggies all year round. I’ve always said that if you starve to death in Florida, you must have arrived here already dead. There is so many fruits and veggies growing wild and volunteer here to harvest by the hungry individual.
    We have a small privately owned market here that literally over flows with produce…and cheap too! It also has a lot of the Island grown crops as they are only a fifty mile boat trip away. But what I wish we had that you all do have, are the different seasons…how I miss the fall harvest festivals.

      It is interesting to meet the farmers who have put in or are planning to put in high tunnels in order to have a controlled winter growing season. Even here in a 4-season climate we have fresh veggies and more available all year. I think if the consumers want it, the farmers will produce it.
