Go with the Flo
4 GoodGymers made their way to help the Flo's - The Place in the Park in Oxford.
- Sunday, 11th of April 2021
- Led by Anwen Greenaway
A quartet of GoodGym gardeners joined the Flo's gardening team to get some work done in the outside space ahead of the cafe restarting outdoor dining next week.
We dismantled a dried out willow fence, moved picnic benches into place, put together parasol bases, set up a freecycle station, flattened and recycled a pile of cardboard, planted lavender, chopped back (but failed to dig up - as testified by the bent fork prong) a bush in the flower bed, and started the process of weaving new willow fronds to create a new flowerbed fence.
We now consider ourselves East Oxford's premier willow weaving experts.
Sadly, we failed to avoid snow and hail, but since we also had plenty of sunshine we'll call it a draw.
Hot drinks on-the-house were a delightful perk - thank you for a lovely couple of hours Flo's!
