Dear everybody

The season and thus our garden days draw to a close as it gets colder and the dark days are getting longer. Many of those who attended the common garden day 27th of September, got their gardens ready for the winter. What can not survive the winter has been thrown on the compost, and the winter crops are ready for the snow. So if you haven’t been at it yet, it’s time to get started before the frost sets in 🙂 Continue reading Newsletter October

Dear Everybody

The fall is here with rain and wind after a sunny August. The late summer sun has given the last crops a much-needed shot of energy, and even the tomatoes are ripening. The sun also shone on our last working day, where the BBQ grilled both vegetables and hot dogs for the industrious gardeners.

Hopefully autumn also has a few sunny days up the sleeve, so we can close down the gardens in style this year. We will do this together at the last joint working day on Sunday September 27th. More on that below.

Grill_Hygge_15_sepA few photos from the joint working day in August: BBQ, fun and gardening.

Next joint work day: Closing down the gardens and cosy campfire
The season’s last working day will take place on Sunday September 27th at 12 O’clock. On this day we close down the gardens together and make them ready for winter. To round off the working day and the season we will light up the grill, make “snobrød” over the campfire and enjoy grilled vegetables we find in the garden. So bring what you can from your own garden. We need many hands to fix the last chores and therefore we are hoping for a large turn up for the workday. See more and register for the event on Facebook here: Activity day 27th of september

Farewell to Anni
Anni Knobelow passed away on August 15th after struggling against cancer for a long time. Our garden is fertile ground for new friendships. And Anni was one of the persons everybody knew. In her tireless dedication to the gardens, she both took care of the waiting list, kept track of the economy and made sure that the transition from the former board to the now-being has been able to succeed.

Annis_bukketThe funeral was held in Brorsons Church.The Board brought a casket spray made of flowers from the garden for the funeral. The family appreciated the presence of the association. Anni was laid to rest at Assistant Cemetery. She will be missed.

New forces on the board – and more are welcome
There has been some changes in the Board after Anni is no longer part of it. In addition, Steffen, after a long effort, has chosen to resign. It has meant that we have set a new team. Erik is still chairman of the board, and Signe (who was a substitute) is the new treasurer. Olga, David and Stephane (former substitute) represent the rest of the board. That means we have a full team. In addition, Peter Andersen has taken responsibility of the newsletter, and we look forward to getting more focus on just that.

New website
We are developing a new website. The new site will make it easier and better for both members and curious souls to find information about the gardens, waiting lists, advice and tips on gardening, forums for working groups etc. The site is still under construction, but the most simple features are up and running. We are working to get it completely done during autumn, but we need help to translate the website into English – and eventually other languages ​​such as Spanish and Arabic. If you want to help with the translation you can find translation tasks here:

We look forward to seeing you all at the gardens on September 27th at 12 noon for the last joint working day and around the campfire.

Many greetings
The Board, Lersøgrøftens Integrationsbyhaver
