3 GoodGymers ventured outside the ring road to help the Cherwell Collective at their ‘Allotment Do Day’.

The allotment at Hazel Walk is used to grow food for the larder and as a space to teach people how to grow their own food. Having found slow worms on the site the back corner will be kept wild as a habitat for them.

Our trio spent a couple of hours digging out turf and bramble roots to create a path to the shed at the back of the allotment. A sticky, clay-y task, so we all went home streaked with mud having had a very decent arm workout!
