Plant Bench & Potting Table Construction [Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday times]

March 16 @ 1:45 pm - March 18 @ 4:30 pm

For the new greenhouse at the Retreat Farm.

We could use help again as we construct our plant benches and potting table. This will take place at the greenhouse itself, which is across the road from Retreat Farm.  You need not come all of the days nor hours. Any amount of help would be appreciated.

We will be working at different times Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday — continue reading to see the schedule of dates and times.

We built the prototype plant bench (without its wire fencing deck attached) and cut/treated many of the pieces we need to build the other 7 benches.  So we have a bunch more to go. This will, again, take place at the greenhouse itself.  You need not come all of the days nor hours. Any amount of help would be appreciated.

Wednesday, March 16,  2022 1:45– 4:30  Cutting 2 x 4 pieces for the frames, braces, legs for 9 more benches. Legs and frames will be drilled for assembly.  Wood treatment for the cut pieces. Wire fencing for the decks will be cut to length for all of the benches and primed. Also cutting the pieces for the potting table

Thursday, March 17,  2022 1:00 – 4:30 Assembling bench frames + legs, assembling the potting table. Wire fencing for the decks primed and painted?

Friday, March 18, 2022 – 1:00 – 4:30  Finishing up work.

We could use any battery powered circular saws, battery powered drills, good hand saws and (if anybody has one) a router.

We would appreciate hearing when you might show up for planning purposes but you are also welcome to just drop by.
