Back to city farm this evening to start our assault on building the much talked goat mountain 🐐 When we arrived we saw a fresh batch of woodchip in the carpark and were wondering whether Tom had visions of this being shifted again instead. However we were all very swiftly put to work, digging up and leveling an area of ground the farm are going to build a classroom on and taking the wheelbarrows full of mud to cover the 'mountain' which was a very large raised area of twigs that needed covering.

It became very apparent why Tom wants this split over multiple sessions as the area is so large. Abby did a particularly good job commandeering the largest and greenest of the wheelbarrows (now known forever more affectionately as Big Baz).

We all agreed this was a definite workout and were pleasantly surprised to see the mountain start to take shape near the end of the session.

We look forward to returning in two weeks time to hopefully help conquer more of goat mountain 🏔️
