If anyone in the Leavenworth area is interested in planting some food, or area beautification projects, just drop a post here!  Would love to work with other like-minded individuals.

I used to work on the campus too, but I got laid off.  TWICE.  Are you still working in the area?  Last time I was out there, the campus was looking kind of shabby.

Hi all,

I am moving to Hemel Hempstead at the end of the month and would be interested in getting involved with guerrilla gardening in the area, hopefully creating some sort of community veg garden somewhere!

Did anything get set up in Hemel from this forum?

My email is dkwaghorn @ gmail . com if you're interested!

there's also a hot water/foam one https://www.weedingtech.com/foamstream-weed-control/

up here in Newcastle upon Tyne, there is an organisation call NGSI- Newcastle green space initiative http://www.ngsi.org.uk/ . One guy called John who spends a lot of time hassling the council not to use roundup on public land. As you can imagine, they are completey backwards and prefer to poison things, though John did manage to get them to go to a demo of it in use.

The group gets the council to allow them to wild plant public spaces such as parks etc

That's an interesting concept, but I still find the old manual weeding tools more useful Grin

A leaf blower often referred to as a blower is a gardening tool that propels air out of a nozzle to move leaves and grass cuttings. These leaf blowers are powered by electric or gasoline motors. Leaf blowers are also perform tasks like cleaning areas covered by mulch or bark more effectively than hand tools Backpack Leaf Blower Reviews and buying guide.


Leaf blowers are commonly independent handheld units, or knapsack mounted units with a handheld wand. The last is more ergonomic for delayed use. Bigger units might lay on haggles utilize an engine for drive. Some are known as the backpack leaf blowers as you can carry them in your back.

Well the guerrilla gardening talk/show and tell was a resounding success at Clondalkin Library. Many thanks for the invite.

Last evening, I attended the Clondalkin Animal Aid fundraiser and was told that one of the attendees last week has been 'getting jjggy with it' throughout Clondalkin, releasing trees hither and yon. He said it has given him a whole new perspective of his surroundings.
So, a great result!

The earliest wheelbarrows with archaeological evidence in the form of a one-wheel cart come from 2nd century Han Dynasty Emperor Hui's tomb murals and brick tomb reliefs.[1] The painted tomb mural of a man pushing a wheelbarrow was found in a tomb at Chengdu, Sichuan province, dated precisely to 118 CE.[2] The stone carved relief of a man pushing a wheelbarrow was found in the tomb of Shen Fujun in Sichuan province, dated circa 150 CE.[3] And then there is the story of the pious Dong Yuan pushing his father around in a single-wheel lu che barrow, depicted in a mural of the Wu Liang tomb-shrine of Shandong (dated to 147 CE).[4] However, there are even earlier accounts than this that date back to the 1st century BCE and 1st century CE. The 5th century Book of Later Han stated that the wife of the once poor and youthful imperial censor Bao Xuan helped him push a lu che back to his village during their feeble wedding ceremony, around 30 BCE.[2] Later, during the Red Eyebrows Rebellion (c. 20 CE) against Xin dynasty's Wang Mang (45 BCE?23 CE), the official Zhao Xi saved his wife from danger by disguising himself and pushing her along in his lu che barrow, past a group of brigand rebels who questioned him, and allowed him to pass after he convinced them that his wife was terribly ill.[2] best wheelbarrow ever 2017.


Nevertheless, the Chinese historical text of the Sanguozhi (Records of the Three Kingdoms), compiled by the ancient historian Chen Shou (233?297 CE), credits the invention of the wheelbarrow to Prime Minister Zhuge Liang (181?234 CE) of Shu Han from 197?234.[5] It was written that in 231 CE, Zhuge Liang developed the vehicle of the wooden ox and used it as a transport for military supplies in a campaign against Cao Wei.[6] Further annotations of the text by Pei Songzhi (430 CE) described the design in detail as a large single central wheel and axle around which a wooden frame was constructed in representation of an ox.[6] Writing later in the 11th century, the Song Dynasty (960?1279) scholar Gao Cheng wrote that the small wheelbarrow of his day, with shafts pointing forward (so that it was pulled), was the direct descendent of Zhuge Liang's wooden ox.[7] Furthermore, he pointed out that the 3rd century 'gliding horse' wheelbarrow featured the simple difference of the shaft pointing backwards (so that it was pushed instead).[7]

Wheelbarrows in China came in two types. The more common type after the 3rd century has a large, centrally mounted wheel. Prior types were universally front-wheeled wheelbarrows.[8] The central-wheeled wheelbarrow could generally transport six human passengers at once, and instead of a laborious amount of energy exacted upon the animal or human driver pulling the wheelbarrow, the weight of the burden was distributed equally between the wheel and the puller.[9] European visitors to China from the 17th century onwards had an appreciation for this, and was given a considerable amount of attention by a member of the Dutch East India Company, Andreas Everardus van Braam Houckgeest, in his writings of 1797 (who accurately described its design and ability to hold large amounts of heavy baggage).[10] However, the lower carrying surface made the European wheelbarrow clearly more useful for short-haul work.[11] As of the 1960s, traditional wheelbarrows in China were still in wide use.[12]

Two bits of news.
Three. Three bits of news.

Tomorrow Thursday July 13th, after the Clondalkin GIY monthly committee meeting I'll be giving a talk on my guerrilla gardening exploits. There will be photos. And maybe some cake (fingers crossed)

From 6.30 pm till 8 o'clock.

Come one, come all.

On Saturday July 15th (and probably 16th) I will be attending the St. Anne's Rose Festival in Clontarf/Raheny and will be giving a demonstration on seed bomb making.

There's no poster for the former activity and I couldn't find one for the latter, but if you put St. Anne's Rose Festival into Facebook, you should get some info there.
I'm not sure of the hours, tbh, but it'll be in the afternoon. I will be dropping by Liberty Park, Foley Street for this...

"Hi Dublin Community Growers. Tree School will be running a walking tour called 'Harvesting Joyce' of Dublin's North inner city community gardens with Jay Sher this Saturday 12 -3pm. Anyone is welcome to join us. We will meet in the Tree Line Projects Circe Pavilion, in Liberty Park, Foley Street. See info on event below and here is a link to the http://treelineproject.org/."

Click on the link and scroll down to the 15th and "Harvesting Joyce with Jason Sheridan"
