Update: The Movable Bilberry Pad – Construction

The construction of the Movable Bilberry Pad has started. During the summer we will grow fresh heath with bilberries and lingonberries. We will also build movable planters for the installation. In the fall we will move some plants, hopefully with berries, to the planters and take them to the folks at Maijala service center in Kangasala. Thank you for our sponsors Messupuu and Piiraisen Viherpalvelu!

The Portable Farm – Planting

The first phase of planting for the Portable Farm was carried out successfully. The brisk residents of the Maijala service center in Kangasala planted the seedlings of useful plants and flowers very quickly. The weather was a bit cold, but let’s hope at least some of the plants will survive and prosper! We also planted a family apple tree that has branches from 4 different apple varieties. We’ll see if we get proper harvest already this year.

Big Thanks for Messupuu and Piiraisen Viherpalvelu for the very generous sponsorship and for Kone Foundation and The Finnish Culture Foundation for funding the work!
