The lobby at Kalliola Settlement House is dominated by a wonderful mural depicting colourful Finnish plants and berries. Airam donated light for the common room of the Kalliola residents, which is a venue for jumble sales, clothing swaps, changing art exhibitions, Finnish language classes for immigrants and pop-up cafés.
During the dark season between October and February, all living house plants benefit from additional light. Gardening enthusiasts then again begin cultivating seedlings in late winter, by putting the first seeds into soil. Indoor seedlings need additional light, at least until the end of March.
In the run-up to Christmas, many candles, fireplaces, ovens and electrical devices are burned in homes, so it’s worth remembering safety.Before Christmas, more cooking than usual is done in homes and unfortunately accidents do occur.
A rebar net hanging from the ceiling is sporting small glass jars with an assortment of succulents and cactuses. The blogger wanted to prepare the terrace lighting in ample time for autumn’s darkening nights with Airam's Kajo series.
