Alexandra Road Community Garden Maintenance - Oct 2020

Helping support the maintenance of a lovely green space

5 places left

This is a community mission, a community led session where you will meet other GoodGym runners at the task. Please make yourself known to anyone in a GoodGym top when you arrive. To attend this session you must sign up in advance. Please do not attend the session if you have not signed up in advance

Alongside government social distancing and hygiene rules, you must:

  • Bring your own gloves suitable for the task
  • Not share tools at the task or clean tools between each use


This is a lovely little garden space run by an equally lovely group of volunteers. The land was gifted to the community by the Council c.25 years ago but numbers of locals involved with the garden have dropped dramatically with people moving on - so they really appreciate the effort and impact a handful of GG members can make. The tidy up is on the first Sunday of each month and is a regular GG Community Mission - please come along and help.

Date and time

10:30 - 12:00 Sunday, 4th of October 2020

As you will make your own way to the task, feel free to walk or run as you wish.

Ideal for beginners

Hello Sheffield Good Gym A small group of local residents look after a community garden in Alexandra Road, Heeley, S2 (about 3/4 of the way up the hill from Heeley City Farm on the left-hand side) on a voluntary basis. The council cut the grass and empty the dog bin but we do all the rest to keep it looking tidy and attractive. It's a lovely little space and we're very proud of it. Over the years we have raised small amounts of money through events and/or small grants to make improvements to the garden (e.g. path surfacing/creating beds and planters/buying plants/buying dog bin etc). However, for various reasons (illness, people moving away etc) there are only a small group of us active at the moment and we're finding it hard to keep on top of the weeding, digging and pruning! We've been told about the good gym initiative and wondered whether there would be any possibility of you doing a gardening session (or two!) for us? If this is a possibility then do get in touch and we can discuss it further and give you more information about different sorts of tasks that need doing etc. Kind regards Naomi Cohen and Jane Beale
