When Kash arrived at lunchtime at Dean Gardens, the new recruit Issy was already forking out (I mean working out!) her muscles on the rather dry soil of the community garden maintained by Cultivate London. The GoodGymers met Angel from Cultivate, who was in charge of the task at the time, and another volunteer, Chris.

The whole quartet received some thumbs up from the public - including a member of the Ealing Council who knew both Cultivate and GoodGym charities. He revealed himself as a driving force from the Council side to secure a grant for initially setting up GoodGym Ealing! Looks like you can spot some legends passing by West Ealing at lunchtime on Tuesdays!

Today's job was pretty simple: turning the soil around the plants, removing the weeds and sprinkling the whole flower bed with fresh compost. The tricky part was to spare the bulbs that, as Kash found out, had been buried quite shallow in the soil.

What are we going to do next week at Dean Gardens? Who knows! If you are curious, sign up here and join us next Tuesday!
