Nine GoodGymers gathered in Canbury Community Garden to meet Marilyn to help with variety of tasks. Whilst Dave and Marie-Noelle took to digging up and relocating a hazelnut tree, most of us started on the main task for the evening, emptying one compost enclosure, moving already made soil into builder’s bag and then moving the partial compost into its place. Quite a good work out this one, where most of us took turns using various tools to complete this task. The local resident chickens were in heaven, being able to run around and 'assist' us with turning the compost over.

We also helped with cutting down some wild mint, weeding the pathway and cutting the grass. Welcome to Alex as this was his first GG mission. See you next time!
