One week on from our first visit, we spent last night taking care of the special communal space at Kilburn Vale Estate again.

Amidst a long spring evening holding a sharp chilly wind, Jackie, John, and I made our leisurely way through Maida Vale's rush hour streets over to our evening of green-fingered work.

Met by the lovely Zosia, we took 45 minutes to completely weed and prepare a patch that will soon house growing wild flower seeds, and we also pruned the ivy, trunks, and canopies of three overgrown trees.

Spending time with earth can be so therapeutic, and yesterday felt like such a welcome break from the bustle of the city and day.

Thank you, Jackie, John, for joining again to make a real difference in this space :)
