Double, Double, Soil & Shovel
10 runners ran to help the Lambeth GP Food Coop in Lambeth.

The first episode in today's two-parter was a very slick affair.
Everyone turned up (big welcome to Ella on her first GG sesh ever 🎉), we shared our favourite meal deal combo (apart from Dawn - she's never had one 🤘) and got cracking with our task.
We do jobs with the GP Food Co Op a lot - They're basically a bunch of Lambeth GPs who see the benefits of being outside and growing & eating veg, so they've set up a load of planters outside various Lambeth surgeries and patients can help out. It's pretty rad.
Anyway, Crown Dale Medical Centre is getting a big overhaul with a massive extension so the planters need to be moved. But first they had to be emptied of soil - that was our job.
We had 9 shovels, 2 wheelbarrows and a load of huge bags (luckily Chrissy from Crown Dale had bought extras - and we needed them) and needed to move 6 planters-worth of soil into the corner of the car park.
Team 1 got to work quickly, emptying the 3 main planters in no time and making a good start on 2 of the others. Effie and Charlotte became chiefs of the piles (of bags of soil 😉) and even arranged for them to be filled up on top of each other to save space.
After an hour of hard graft, and finding plenty of leftover potatoes, Team 2 came along to finish the job. Over to you Liv...
