After a long time of preparations and planning we were ready to construct the basic element of the country garden in Joyo. On this weekend, from the 23rd to the 24th of February we gathered members of Groundwork Fukuoka and people from Joyo to help us building the flower/herb beds which are the main part of the whole garden.
We began on Saturday morning, preparing the ground, made it flat, so we could erect the beds correct. Afterwards the timbers had to be put on the same level, must be screwed together and filled with sand. This was the most time keeping and exhausting part of the weekend, since we had to dig a lot of earth with our own hands (with shovels of course), as the excavator couldn’t go everywhere.
