The folk at Agnes Riley Gardens had made two planters and set them up in one corner of their lovely community garden only to discover that it was too shady to let anything grow. So they asked GoodGym Lambeth for some help and help we did

Arriving at dusk, we quickly emptied the soil out of one of the planters into buckets and barrows, and then gracefully(ish) carried the empty planters all the way across to their new sunny spots. And then filled them all up again.

It was all over so quickly, Adrian couldn't really believe it but that's the power of GoodGym.
