This shelter took a long time to complete because all the materials were either donated, or salvaged from skips. All the work was also done by volunteers in their spare time.
Rain water is harvested from its roof, and the fireplace will soon be installed to keep us warm and dry in the winter months.
After a lot of work, a new pen for the pigs has been made using recycled pallets.
Binky and Babe cannot contain their excitement
The old pen will be converted to an allotment
The pigs have already started to dig up the new ground
With the imminent arrival of Spring, a new pen is being prepared for the pigs. This will allow their current pen to be turned into a vegetable patch. The disused well was put into use for the first time today, producing perfectly clear water. Thankyou to Lara and Jaap Singh, who helped today.
Building house for pigs……cost:£0.00……with help from Rajbir Singh
Pigs are the most natural way to turn over virgin ground……they will eat everything above and under the ground, turning the soil over as they go, and of course adding their own fertiliser. This will be their home for the next few months, and after they are moved on in the spring, the area will be transformed into a vegetable garden.
Construction for outdoor auditorium begins……this currently seats 12 people, work will continue to increase seating capacity to 36……colour coordinated seats will spell the word L.O.V.E…….all materials are recycled and free
