Ready, Steady, GO!!

It's taken a long time, I know, but we are ready to build the greenhouse dome!  First, Frank Hagemann will dig the excavation by April 23, then the climate battery built and backfilled during a volunteer weekend, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, April 23, 24 & 25.
Then our foundation contractor, TJ Concrete, will move in with our excavator to augur the pier holes, locate and set the sonotube forms with rebar and pour the concrete.  We will give them two weeks to accomplish this, then on Monday May 10, Growing Spaces' assembly crew will begin erecting the dome.  They will welcome small numbers of volunteers to help, Monday thru Friday.  We anticipate engaging the HS students in this work, primarily, but will welcome anyone with a whole day on their hands, who is good with their hands.
Finally, we will have our second and final volunteer weekend, Friday May 14 through Sunday May 16, to place the perimeter insualtion, backfill the insulation with gravel, and to clean up the site.  On May 30, Sunday afternoon at 4:00, we will have a community potluck dinner at the greenhouse dome, during which time we'll take the opportunnity of an audience to thank all the contributors to getting this greenhouse built, and to inform everyone of our educational plans for the High School and the entire Community.  Please let us know if we are missing any donor's names in our thank-you list in the right sidebar.
Thank, you, thank you, everyone!!
