So we ran a random route and took in a bit of Hackney drama along the way! Covering a nice 3.5k to Wilton estate to get the blood pumping and body temperature rising before we split into 3 groups and got cracking!!
We have the Shovellers who had to battle the extra weight of saturated soil as they shovelled and shifted the 2 tonnes of premium soil into the main garden and half a tonne of regular soil into the mini garden.
We had the tree planters digging deep to create a hole for 10 fruit trees. Pick axing our way to glory in a tough task happily the rain was good for softening the ground.
The final group got a serious workout!! Heading off to the Hackney Empire to collect a huge amount of wood! Walking it 500 metres back to he garden it was a massive effort on the 3 trips back to the garden!!
With time tight we zipped back to base. Mobilised our upper body after the tough workout and headed off into the night!!
See you next week
