Due to flight issues coming back from Spain, Rebecca found herself at Thorlands two weeks in a row! It was also a delight to see the regular Lucie and a newbie to the area, Benoît who cycled all the way from Bethnal Green in East London.

The foursome took on the "Forest" garden since the woodchip delivery didn't arrive on time, the team continued with putting down cardboard, leaf mulch and woodchip to the tunes of summer throwbacks. By the end of the hour (and over the course of many Saturdays), they had covered almost a third of the "Forest" garden. There's more of this to be done to cover the whole area to ensure weeds can't grow and to start anew.
