Week 8 – We just planted our first 50 fruit trees!
Last Sunday was the day we have been waiting for for a long time.
After a few weeks of preparation we were finally ready to plant our first 50 fruit trees and a few flower beds full of vegetables.
To celebrate this moment and to do it all at once we invited some friends to help us with planting.
We were so happy to see all of our friends working together on our land.
Oscar, the owner of Organic Life Project, started with giving a speech about the whole concept of organic food production, and it was very impressive.
Then we all got to work, thankfully it only took us around 2 hours to plant everything as the day was very hot.
The rest of the afternoon we spent at the BBQ, talking, laughing and playing guitar.
I feel like this first gathering of like minded people working together on our land is just the beginning of building our community here.
This week Agata has been also working hard on two other subjects. As we don’t want to constantly bug our neighbour for water she has been looking into getting us connected to the water supply. It is not that simple as it requires talking to different agricultural communities and figuring out which connection from whom to use. We’re still working on it…
The other big subject of the week was applying for the subsidies so we can use local grants to cover some of our expenses. Here we have to deal with something pretty common on the island, where each person says something different… The ladies in the local agricultural department are telling us that there are no subsidies this year while the people we work with tell us something opposite. Hopefully the latter are right as we could really use additional 70,000 euros 😅 The time will tell.
This last week our great crew also made a lot of progress with the roof structure, just have a look at the pictures! We can’t wait to see it finished.
