PJPS Gardening Project

Start  Sept. 3rd, 2015:
Let’s preparing our shaddy, old, dirty PJPS garden field   
into a NEW green and blooming place!

Every Saturday, 1 – 4p.m., at PJPS - Office
Everyone is welcome !
If possible, please bring your gardening tools, seed or seedlings…

I would like to be together with you to share ideas about planting, growing, nursery, then earning and not at least cooking! Specially to share all between my earth in Switzerland and your wonderful place here! Together we prepare our garden and hopefully can earn fresh vegetables, spices and blooming flowers! This includes also new trash bins for everyone to use in the entrance aera / parkfield.

The Start>   The big cleaning.  

9 mothers + 9children are here for our big start. I gave a oversight of the project (waste management, plant pots at entrance of library and multi-purpose room and naturally our garden).

First the big long woodboards and church frames need to be removed. Thanks Jonathan! Then 5 big sacks we could filled with rubbish! A lot of shoes, whole trash bins, a lot of take away plates, spoons, forks, clothes…

After 2 hours hard and sweaty work : Refreshments and a big salamat. Our secret :-) 
Now  - the big, little place is now ready to trench, hack, prepare for horticulture.
The ideas of the group is to plant: ocra, eggplants, sitaw, petchay and flowers J  

The Trashbins

Salamat po to Leila for painting
a colourful LOVE work.

These Bins are made inside the Minimum Security Camp, 8-10 pieces to use there,
and 2 for PJPS!

But this is a very hard thing to use, everyday is new rubbish still on the bottom, and nobody cares! Prisoneres sometimes are coming to clean,
some mothers or Jonathan, our staff member and me!  But ...?
Specially the use with separation signs, there is no chance! But the PJPS office decided on a staff meeting --> we are willing to do ... PLEASE DO IT !!!   Hopefully we can keep on!  

 For seed it's hard in rainy season!
