Welcome Party 2013

Every year we welcome new members to our garden team. This year we hired a Pizza Oven, students brought their own special dishes and we even tried out a few electric bikes. When the sun went down, we lit a fire and found time to make lots of new friends. A fabulous evening.

Fires have always been a great way to make new friends.

  4. Had so much fun on this night snacking on the ceaseless supply of delicious pizza. The garden is so beautiful at night and what can be better than sitting around a small fire toasting marshmellows? 🙂

    I had a good time and enjoy the open fire, the pizza oven, the music and the bikes. The welcome party provide safety circumstance. There are not have any harmful issue to other people and environment. This project is great. I can learn how to eat sweet pizza from this party. This is very good opportunity for students. I hope we can have more of these events again!!!
