Gardening in Olaine: Thursday 21 May 09:00

May 18, 2015By

Dear ladies,

The weather is becoming warmer, so let’s spend some time outside!

We would like to invite you for a gardening morning in Olaine* on Thursday 21 May.

*IWCR supports Betlemes Maja, a charity for men and women who suffer/suffered from severe addictions.

Before they can go to a community house in the city, they receive support (e.g. psychologist) in an old farm in Olaine.

The plan is to make a flower garden with a willow fence around. The “bigger” ground work and the cutting of willow branches will be done for us by the men living on the farm. We will do planting, make a low willow fence and cover the ground to make it weed free. We will have lunch there which will be soup and bread.

We would like you to bring 1 (or more) plants with flowers (small, big, low, high, white, pink. Everything is fine).

It will also be possible to buy farm eggs. 10 eggs will cost 2 EUR.

This event is on Thursday 21 May starting at 9:00. Since Olaine is about 45 minutes driving from Riga, we will meet at the Olimpia shop parking area outside and will do car-pooling. We plan to be back in Riga at 14:00.

And Ladies, please don’t wear your best clothes 🙂

Please let us know if you can come before May 19 by e-mail to

Best regards,

Vija and Rika
