There were scythes, and nettles, and bind weed; all the GoodGym task essential elements!

We spent a very wholesome morning at Oxford City Farm drop-in morning running the café, detangling bind weed from lime trees and pear trees, scything nettles, moving benches and fixing up guttering so that it feeds the water butt. Thomas manned the gate, and everyone learned how to care for the chickens, sheep and bunnies. There's trouble in paradise with bullying issues amongst the hens and the rabbits! Hopefully harmony will be restored very soon. The sheep were delightful as ever - they'd never stoop to such undignified behaviour.
