That hasn't stopped us enjoying ourselves though! We are holding meetings every Sunday and have been making planters, building seedling trays, tidying up in the shed and generally nesting.
Most of the plants have been sown now, the garlic is still thriving and the tulips are starting to show leaves. The borage can't be planted for a little while and we definitely need to sow more herbs for the staggeringly popular Tim's Tea Box!
At the moment the weather is so cold that none of the seeds are starting to germinate but they have at least been sown. They won't get killed from the frost and some of them even require a very cold spell in order to sprout. The colder temperatures in the greenhouse also mean that the plants will be more robust when they finally grow. Some of us have taken some seed trays (and egg boxes!) home to get them going a bit quicker.

Building preparations are going to start on the 2nd of April and the big opening day will happen during Aarhus Sustainability Festival where Adopt A Box is going to be collaborating with Cirkus Mærkbar, attempting to make sustainability fun and accessible to children http://www.facebook.com/events/360244820732222/
If you are interested in looking after some plants for a couple of weeks, write us a mail! Otherwise join us on one of our Sunday meetings! There are more frequent updates on Facebook so "like" us here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Adopt-A-Box/352207261469041 and see what's happening.
