Nine Goodgymers met today for another afternoon on the farm. Welcome to Richard who came along on his first GG run, give him a cheer!

Today's task was to tidy the paths by the public plots (which are similar to, but legally are not, allotments).

This involved weeding first, then forming an assembly line of woodchip across the farm to mulch and make sure the weeds couldn't reappear.

Richard and I had a minor diversion to help keep the cows hydrated by moving a water butt. They were not having much luck with buckets, as they keep knocking them over!

After a solid two hours, we made it half way down the plots. There was just time to give the sheep their appetiser of oats before feeding time, then we all ran off into the dusk. Bex was very pleased with our work, well done gang.
