A rainy day, but that just means that the ground is softer and easier to dig! Seven goodgymers got together at Stargarallot to help tidy up the community growing space, Four runners and everyone else cycling to the task.

We were welcomed by Camilla and shown the shed of snacks, before a quick briefing on the task tonight. There was a bed that had become overgrown and needed clearing, and three rockery type spaces that would require all of the roks to be removed, dug up and then placed back until it was time to plant in there again.

We split into three groups, one on the main bed and the other two taking a rockery each. We had a good catch up whilst getting the task done, saw the smallest tiny snail, filled a hot bin ready to make some more compost, saved a sage plant and took some wonderful before and after pictures. A bite or two on our legs from the needle nosed busy buzzies, and it was time to make our way back to the city centre.
