We are always looking for ways to improve the flow at THE Hungry Spirit garden and we enjoy creating new spaces! Our latest gardens will become herb and spice patches as they are close to the kitchen, but for now they provide pathways through the site and the mulch will be breaking down over time to help build the nutrition of the soil
Our next space will be an expanse of food forrest with fruit and nut trees as well as perrenial vegetables and fruits like asparagus and rhubarb. This area will take more time to develop as we require heaps more woodchip. We are building these up using recycled cardboard boxes (laid down straight on the ground) and woodchip salvaged from the side of the road! Again it will be a year or two before we plant into these spaces as our primary focus will be on soil generation!
The final space we are blooming is for HUMAN growth…it’s a sand circle where we can dance, play, meditate and connect with nature. I experienced the most wonderful workshop on Bruny Island where we danced at sunrise in a giant sandpit under the trees. It was magic and I came home and immediately re-instated the sandpit that was in the space originally for the Aboriginal men to dance when we had THE Hungry Spirit operating as Dig In!
Watch this space for dancing sessions!
On June 28th we will be starting the first of our regular Monthly Creative Community FREE events where you can come and join us to help create and craft new spaces at THE Hungry Spirit…bring your best ideas and some food to share as we will herald in the evening with a film or documentary on the big screen too!
