In the jungle, the mighty jungle, 8 GoodGymers weed tonight!!
8 GoodGymers made their way 4km to help the Urban Green Up Project, Liverpool in Liverpool.
- Monday, 16th of October 2023
- Led by Sophie McClellan
4 runners met on Hope Street and meandered down to Park Lane. Lovely to be joined by Farnaz once again! Once there, we were met by 4 more goodgymmers and Elaine from Urban Green Up.
We have done a few sessions here, and I am always amazed at how different it looks each time and how much the plants have grown! This time around, Elaine greeted us with the fantastic news that the project has been nominated for not one, but two Landscapes Institute awards for 'Excellence in Biodiversity' and 'Climate Change Environment and Social Outcomes'. It's an amazing project and we have everything crossed for a win!
The task tonight was weeding, with creeping thistles being the main culprit.
As the light faded we worked quickly and Elaine was amazed with how much we achieved, although it was difficult to see the results by the end! Well done everyone! Cant wait to be back soon for some planting.
