Here are the most likely dates for bulding the maze. I cannot confirm them 100% (apart from the Bristol Open Door Day) because it all depends on the succes of the mowing. If they stumble accross a birds nest they will have to stop and resume work 2 weeks later. If you have any suggestions to improve this schedule, please do let me know. Other wise, please put those dates in your diaries. Obviously, I don't expect everyone showing up for all of the dates and I understand it's quite a while in advance, but it would be really helpful if you could send me a line saying which dates you could do, so I have a rough estimate. 2nd of September - litter picking and cement slab repair. 9th of September - Mock'a Maze day - early morning marking the maze with bamboo canes instead of wooden posts, twine instead of wire, paper signs on kebab sticks instead of plants , cardboard boxes instead of planters, chairs instead of benches (unless we manage to install them when the cement slab is being repaired), chalk design instead of paint design on the slab. Stall with tea & berry cakes. 16th of September - spreading the mulch - we will need any extra wheelbarrows available 23rd of September - replacing canes with wooden posts, planters to be placed + gravel added to them 30th of September - hanging the wires, filling the planters with compost 7th of October-11th of November - finishing up if we didn't manage to do it in the set times above. 18th of November - planting the berries. For those of you with gardening skills, we might need help on some of the days in that week, to help supervising/teaching the children to plant some of the berries. So far we have 2 schools who want to join in, but no dates confirmed yet. 25nov or 13th of January or dates around this, weather permitting - artist to paint the design on the cement slab, volunteers to fill in the colours. June 2018 - Grand Opening event!
