On Saturday 80 people assembled at London Grown and worked for an hour and a half helping to help create London's biggest community growing space.

GoodGym veterans and first timers alike braved the cold on a beautifully clear, crisp Saturday morning to help The London Grown Workers' Co-operative work on 7 acres of derelict land with the hope of transforming the area into London's largest community growing space. Once ready the site will be used to grow organic vegetables and fruit for the local people to buy at affordable prices and to show people how to grow local affordable food - if you're interested, they will be teaching every Monday from March 2017.

A half way fitness session and a delicious refuel from Moju Drinks and we were ready to get back to work to complete the task. We even did a bit of lung capacity training by singing happy birthday to Phil - hope you had a great day Phil.

The London Grown Workers' Co-operative were really pleased with the turnout and work accomplished in the time we were there.

Big thanks to Team London and Haringey Council for supporting GoodGym and making events like these possible.
