What a great life it is.
In my first week, I've met eveyone who introduced themselves, been given nearly 100sqm of tarpaulin to cover it (kill the grasses), given 3 raised beds to get going, given loads of plants to plant in first beds, lent oil drums, tools, and no-one would accept a penny.
Everyone is thoroughly pleasant. What a lovely existence!
Best of all I get to start shopping for a shed!
