Well here we are, about to start a new month and with some very good news to talk about.
The first and of course, the most important one is that since last Wednesday I am officially employed again and working with a former student of the OCGD. Being now one the most well-known and recognized garden designers in London, Charlotte Rowe has offered me the opportunity to work at her practice for 2 days a week but with the real possibility to increase these to 3 or 4 days a week once the new 2011 arrives.
I can not deny this is a very good way to push myself into the garden design business, as that will add more design experience to my “construction & management” knowledge and at the same time, will give me some more time during the week to work on my own projects. First week was good, starting a design for a new roof terrace and preparing some SketchUp views to show to the client this week but obviously, more to come once I settle myself into this role.
And talking about my own projects, the evolution of the works at the Fulham Community Garden on Fulham Palace Road has good pace. Some more volunteers came last Wednesday and kept going with the clearance of old greenery, digging all roots over and leaving the area almost ready to apply new compost and manure next week. Yes, and that is more good news, we have got already fundings for the purchase of all the compost plus half of the plants needed, thanks to a couple of businesses nearby and some other individuals (either living or working in the area) that have given funds towards the project. Still a little bit more to raise though so again, if you feel you would like to help, please contact me through a comment on this post.
Finally and as a result of the evolution of my garden design business, I am starting a new blog in Blogger where I will keep writing about my experiences, thoughts and everything else as I have been doing until now. Please keep visiting and subscribing to it as you have been doing with this one, I promise you will find it at least interesting, if not useful.
Thank you WordPress for this year and few months. It’s been a great time!!
