Winter Solstice Celebration – 21st Dec

Posted on 29 November 2021

On Tuesday 21st December, on the beach in front of Coast Café from 5.30pm-7.30pm we will be having a Winter Solstice Celebration!

Come and join us round the fire, bring acoustic instruments, wood for the fire and celebrate the turn of the year and the returning of the light with us. Coast Café will be open for warming drinks, hot soup and bread – and cake of course!

A new Worthing Morris side, Worthing Larks** will be dancing for about 20 minutes from around 6.30pm, audience participation included too!

This event is always very weather dependent and the Morris can’t dance if it’s wet, so please bear that in mind. Coast will be open, whatever it’s like and we will be there and hopefully have a fire (we’ve done fires when it’s been raining hard in the past so that shouldn’t stop us!) but we may not do anything on the beach if it’s raining really hard. Naturally, this event is subject to current Covid guidelines (as are all our events).

**Worthing Larks – “Worthing’s very own Morris Side and one of the newest on the South coast, following our break from another local Side in 2020. A mixed morris team for members over the age of 13, enthusiastically performing a selection of Cotswold, Border and our very own Broadwater dances to traditional folk instruments.”

...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.
