A massive thanks to all the team who bas been building the geodesic yoga dome for Arundel Green Camp over the last year.
The contstruction of the dome bas been a community effort: From the cooperative events team (www.sustainablemedia.co/events) that partied for the funds for the wood with the forest festival.
Who then cut the wood down to size in Devon:
To natural woodsman and master carpentar Luke Green and Gino who flew the frame on the shortest and coldest day of the year:
To the final covering of the dome in Shink wrap on the longest and hottest day of the year. Thanks and well done everyone for a great team effort.
The Dome will intially be for Yoga and workshops like our vegan permaculture design curriculum but in the fututure:
The Geodome tree nursery will provide a place where members of Arundel Forest Garden can come to take cuttings from the existing species of edible trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants in the garden and graft them onto other vigorous root stock or just propagate more young seedlings so that we can spread the garden. Think of it like a living library where we store all records of what is in the library using The Beacon Bank Community Exchange System.
The Geodome tree nursery seeks to use a solar pump to pump stored rainwater from the roof through a spiral irrigation system that goes from the top of the inside of the dome, down through some ag pipe that the little plastic bottle tops (cut and turned upside down) that fit into holes in the ag pipe so that when the water is pumped through the system (on a timer) all the seeds and cuttings get watered and share nutrients / fungus, soil microbes etc.
This is part of the Community Participatory Agriculture project of The Sustainable Media Co-operative (www.sustainablemedia.co/community-participatory-agriculture) and the Automated tree nursery project www.sustainablemedia.co/automated-tree-nursery/.
Here then we have a magazine of life, to produce ammunition for our love army and kinky police who are out there trying to stay honest with themselves and harmless. This would be a very good emergency response unit/model to regenerate ecosystems and communities destroyed by war and natural disaster as per www.sustainablemedia.co/events/.
All the struts are cut thanks to Will Holland, Josh Green, Beefheart Garcia, Luke and Charlie Burls in Devon and the dome hubs are from www.Domemade.co.uk assembled by Gino Bisogni and Luke Green.
Here's a video explaining the basics:
