Deep in the docks
3 GoodGymers made their way to help the Kings Path WIldflower meadow in York.

We met Gordon again to tackle more of those pesky docks. The whole area has now been rotavated but the weeds have popped up again with avengeance. The ground was very soft due to recent rain so each root came up with a huge clod of earth which we did our best to remove before piling them up under the nearby trees.
We were joined by a couple of young lads (who Gordon knew) who lived close by and wanted to help. They didn't have the GG staying power and left after about half an hour but their help was very welcome.
After 45 minutes of digging out the docks, with the light fading and several inches of mud on our shoes, we called it a day. We've only tackled a small area but every little helps! Gordon has grand plans for the area and has already planted some shrubs and plans to sow the wildflower seeds soon.
