Mick the gardener (with help from the other Mick and Matt) assembled the shed for our Ecominds garden project on Monday. That’s after some tough work laying foundations with sand and flagstones.

Amusingly, sheds come as a kit, like IKEA flat pack furniture. So between admirably heaving about large wooden panels, Mick keeps checking the instructions to make sure he’s on course for a well-built shed.

Over the course of just a few hours, Mick and his helpers had all three sides of the shed assembled and screwed together ready to safely store equipment and tools which will be used to build the Orb community Ecominds garden. Photos of their progress are below:
