Tellus: Gearing Up for Work

Ave, Sandum Citizens!

The Office of the Sôgmô, which currently manages and administrates the Tellus Agrarian Cooperative, has announced the first research conducted for the Cooperative has been fruitful and fortunate, especially in determining an easy and fast-growing crop as the Cooperative’s first. The Sôgmô has announced tonight that, after much deliberation, work will be laid out to prepare for the cultivation of radishes.

Radishes — a hearty and resilient crop requiring at least light-shade, regular watering, and which has a quick harvest time (21 to 28 days) — are to be the first crop of the Tellus Agrarian Cooperative. Work shall begin first, however, on containers to house these first initial crops, as more research and planning must be done. Planning must be done to discern where these containers would go, how they will be structured, and what types of radishes and if other plans should be planted with the radishes, et cetera.

Unlike many other cooperatives, Tellus commenced without emblems, imagery, and regalia. However, the Office of the Sôgmô is changing that as it prepares to establish an emblem of Tellus and, much like the Citizens’ Communist Party of Sandus, give it an anthem. The lyrics of the anthem are currently being written, though it is based around the Soviet «March of Spring».

As no communal land has been made ready for the Cooperative yet, the Office of the Sôgmô shall explore this opportunity. Current ideas are primarily based on the property of le Palaso d’Etato (the Palace of State), such as inside the central foyer/stairwell or on top of the carport; the carport option receives nearly constant light, making it preferable for crops which require full-sunlight. In the future, the Office of the Sôgmô hopes to be able to rent a communal garden or rent fallow land in order to plant crops for the Cooperative.

The Office of the Sôgmô shall prepare for work as soon as possible.
