The Terrace Project is the working title for Claire and friends' most recent initiative. This horticultural enterprise will cultivate CCW's research culture through growing a green n nourishing microenviro on the third floor of E-Block.

22 July 2013: This isn't exactly a 'before' photo of Terrace A but it's still early days.

22 August 2013: Mint is added to the garden. I'm told it grows like an enthusiastic weed without much preference about its environment. Sounds like my speed.

September-November 2013: The pathetic excuse for the lack of documentation of the garden is that the Graduate School camera went on extended leave in September, never to return. It was replaced in November. The more robust excuse is that I became involved in the REF for these three months and did not have time to photograph the garden. Not much better as excuses go.

3 December 2013: These are the plants staying outside for the winter. Lavender (second from the bottom) joined the garden in September during the absence of the camera.

3 December 2013: There is fruit on the chilli plant! Two chillies in total!

Chilli plant 2013 08 29.JPG
29 August 2013: The chillies are impressively tall and a hearty weed has come up next to them on the left. I like the look of it.

3 December 2013: The mint and the chillies (with the addition of the new yellow ones Laura (Graduate School Senior Administrator) donated from Harry the greengrocer in Camberwell) joined the geranium inside for the winter.
