The event went well through out the day on site. After we finished our time on site we head back to Hulme Community Garden. We had given them our installation for a better use in the future instead of just throwing it away. Will come here soon to see how the installation looks like in the future. This was a success, goodbye.

//TOUR & HELP
We went to the Hulme Community Garden Centre for a little 'Tour & Help' session and also to listen to a talk on home gardening. Among the community projects and installation that was located in the garden there was one that caught my eye that was the straw cottage (picture above). The interior walls were made out of mashed straw while the exterior was wood.
