NLDoet at Stadsboerderij the Molenweide

Also this year, Rotaract Den Haag – Scheveningen took again part in the nationwide NLDoet activities. This year we helped Stadsboerderij the Molenweide. The work consisted of carpentry as well as improvements to the environment. We made new planters, which will be planted with hanging strawberries. In addition, some planters were replanted with flowers, and painted with blackboard paint. Then there was some digging to be done; the outside quarters of the rabbits had to be raised with sand. Here already some muscle power was needed, but when it was done some more was needed to provide the entrance to the field for goats and sheep with new dry sand, otherwise they would sink away in the mud. Because it was almost Easter, there were finally some Easter branches made which will be adorned by the children during the week before Easter and brought to the eldery.

We have also been able to enjoy a good lunch (with pancakes and milk from theĀ  Molenweide!). To top it off we were able to pet the newborn lambs at the end of the day. A few days before we came, two black lambs were born, and the night before we were two white lambs. Spring has really arrived!
