TTW Repair Café – Book Now For January

Posted on 26 November 2021

We normally hold our repair cafes on the last Saturday of each month. This month it falls on Christmas Day so we won’t be open this month and our volunteers will be having a meal together instead and a well deserved break. We shall return next year on Saturday 29th January 10am-4pm at the Quaker/Friends Meeting House and on the last Saturday of every month after that.

As usual our amazing team of volunteers will be on hand to share their skills and help you to repair your clothes, toys, bicycles, laptops, small household electrical/electronic items, small items of furniture and knife/scissor sharpening. And don’t forget that we also have lots of refills available in return for suggested donations. Such as household cleaning products, shampoo, conditioner, face and body washes, hand lotion and more! Full list here: https://www.ttworthing.org/repair-cafe/#cafe-refill-service

So keep the date in your diary and reserve your slot now via:

...the stunts we get up to on our community allotments!!

Planting a Victoria Plum, kindly donated and planted by Natalie, and then collecting and delivering a 1000 litre cube to The Triangle. 

Huge thanks to Worthing Coaches Official for donating a couple of cubes so we can harvest a lot more rainwater this year for our community fruit and veg growing.

Hugelkultur, pronounced Hoo-gul-culture, means hill culture or hill mound. We call them Huggies down in Carondelet.

Instead of putting branches, leaves and grass clippings in bags by the curbside for the bin men... build a hugel bed. Simply mound logs, branches, leaves, grass clippings, straw, cardboard, petroleum-free newspaper, manure, compost or whatever other biomass you have available, top with soil and plant your veggies.

The advantages of a hugel bed are many, including:

The gradual decay of wood is a consistent source of long-term nutrients for the plants. A large bed might give out a constant supply of nutrients for 20 years (or even longer if you use only hardwoods). The composting wood also generates heat which should extend the growing season.

Soil aeration increases as those branches and logs break down... meaning the bed will be no till, long term.

The logs and branches act like a sponge. Rainwater is stored and then released during drier times. Actually you may never need to water your hugel bed again after the first year (except during long term droughts).

On a sod lawn we recommend cutting out the sod, digging a one foot deep trench and filling the trench with logs and branches. Then cover the logs with the upside down turf. On top of the turf add grass clippings, seaweed, compost, aged manure, straw, green leaves, mulch, etc...
This one here is a Garlic " Huggie " located in the Forest Park area of St. Louis.
