A tree grows close to the long perimeter fence in the garden. As the tree grew larger, a section of the fence began to open up. Children from the neighbouring garden began to sneak through — the discovery of a whole new world. Rather than repair the fence, we decided to allow the tree to expand unconstrained, and added a small ladder for easier access between gardens. In 2026, after getting to know the neighbours much better, we decided to open up more of the fence. We constructed a large table from the remaining timber — a place for meals between adjacent families. Later, we altered it so it could be pulled up to form a gap, a neighbour from each side required to hoist the rope.
