Ashley Cottonwood wrote:Hi Inge! Nice work!

Looks like you have at least a dozen 'sites' indicated.

Can you mark, indicate, or explain at least three places on the map that are also in your photos?

Thanks!


Hi Ashley. That's my mistake: I didn't think of most parts of my garden as 'places'.
I did mark some 'places'. In photo 1 from above you see the willows (it's almost all you see). In the map I named them 'wilgen' (Dutch for willows). At the left side.
In the first drawing there's 'trapje op en neer'  (stairs up and down) a little above the willows. You can't see it in the photo because of all those willow branches. If you like you can see it in a photo I posted for the BB 'brush pile'. Also the brush pile is invisible in the photo from above.
In photo 2 you can see some thin blue straight lines, going diagonally over the garden. That's the laundry line. In the middle drawing you can see it, named 'waslijn'.  
In the right hand back corner you can see the compost heap. It's named 'compost' in the middle drawing. (It's named 'aardappels' in the February drawing, because I planted potatoes there, they are already harvested and the compost heap returned back to that spot).
There is a 'place' for pots (for potted plants) named 'plek for potten' (spot for pots) in the first drawing. But those pots aren't visible in the photo. Other potted plants are, but they are temporary, don't have a fixed spot.

More. In the middle of the garden (at the under side of the middle plant bed in the drawings) there's a large perennial kale. Named 'eeuwig moes' in Dutch. You can see it in both photos from above. So you know how the photos fit together as one plan.

Although I did get the BB for the map of my garden, I decided to make a better map for this PEP. It is about Community, so I made a map of my neighbourhood and indicated the places which have importance for me. And then made photos of those places.


I made this map of Haveltermade, a neighbourhood of the town Meppel (Drenthe, eastern part of the Netherlands). I used Google Maps and MapsMe, first made a drawing in pencil on graph paper, then made squares a little bit larger on a piece of paper. This drawing I first made in pencil, then inkted (fineliners) and then coloured with colour pencils.


This is 'Eetbaar Noorderpark', a food forest project we started (2 years ago) with the same group as Permacultuur Meppel. With permission of town council, on their ground (Noorderpark).


This is the community garden of Permacultuur Meppel (PM on the map). Also in the Noorderpark. This was the first project of P.M., started over 4 years ago, a group of volunteers who almost all live in Haveltermade.


These are the little goats of the 'Dierenweide' (animal or pet pasture), which is very close to the community garden. This isn't part of Permacultuur Meppel, but we like it.  


This is marked on the map with 'KZ'; it is the Kingdom Hall (KoninkrijksZaal) of Jehovah's Witnesses. This is important to me, because I'm in that congregation of JW.


Foot/bicycle bridge over the Oude Vaart. I often pass that bridge, because it is close to where I live.


The street I live in. You can see the entrance gate to my front yard in the left of this photo. The only garden in the street with such a living green gate.
In the distance there are some signs of shops at the street level of apartment buildings. That's what I mean in the map by buildings with orange and grey stripes ...

I certify this BB complete!

My Map: Windward has dedicated 40 acres of forest as a private venue campground and I made this map for our campers' use.

What a fun BB!  I mapped beginner's geocaching points in my area (so happy to see I'm not the only nerd here!).  Our first outing years ago with little kids resulted in ONE find out of eight.  It was disappointing.  We've gotten much better over the years.  I mapped easy points and wrote up a cheat sheet for the parents so that those taking younger ones could let the kids try, and then help if needed (tried to upload this, but it won't upload Word docs).  Pics are of the three most interesting caches (BRT, Romance, Birds).  

Here's an example of the "cheats":
B.R.T.
N 47° 26.798 W 122° 50.177
Large cache with swag.  Daylight hours only.  You’ll need this number to open the log: 12287 (6921 + 5366).  Turn on NW Roessel Road and follow it around the curve to the end of the pavement.  Watch speed limit (10 mph).  Look for blue/green mushroom sculpture.  Note: There are two harder to find caches within 300 yards of this one.  See Geocaching.com to find them if your children are up to it.  This is an elaborate cache and probably best done last; the others won’t live up to it.

Staff note :

Better pix of the locations rather than the caches would be preferable but I'm going to certify it. It's seems perfect for teaching kids though! This BB is complete.
