come help us get started!
getting dirty and (then) beautiful #1 is at invizin (april 11 – may 8, 2016), so tell me soon when and for how long you plan to come. it is exciting to be able to have you here to help get another creative and safe place up and running. Of course there will be loads of free time to eat, drink, be merry, hike, swim and, as usual, make new friends.
sleeping space is first come first serve, or bring a tent, or come by camper/van. though it is best to bring a sleeping bag for those sleeping inside, there are toilets, a shower, electricity, internet and a kitchen for everyone to use. you don’t have to come for the whole month, but you are welcome if you do!
Projects for this period will include two or more of the following:
landscaping, organic and experimental garden development and installation, exterior/interior plastering, exterior/interior painting, industrial kitchen appliance/resource repair (gas stoves, freezer, brick wood-fired pizza ovens)…
Skilled labor like electricity, plumbing, bricklaying, carpentry, etc. are also welcome, but these projects require permissions and paperwork, so let me know if this is your thing and we can see what may be possible.
I am trying to get most of the materials and tools locally, but here is the wish list, just in case there is something on it that you can bring with you:
rakes, and pitchforks
hammers and mallets
large pipe wrenches
files and chisels
gloves and masks
… and financial contributons are also always welcome
so contact us and see you soon!
just a reminder that getting dirty and (then) beautiful vol. 1 kicks off this monday april 11, 2016 for a whole month! any way you can contribute is enthusiastically welcome. so, take a look at your calendars, storage spaces and pockets and see if you can sneak in a few days of help, materials or cash.
