Seeing the wood for the trees
1 GoodGymer made their way to help the Plantastic - Community Forest Garden in Redbridge.
- Tuesday, 31st of August 2021
- Led by Jem
Thinking I was going to be alone, I brought my Dad along to this task (GoodGym and family!) we got to Plantastic mesmerised by all the growth of fruits and vegetables over the summer then got stuck in clearing a plot where what looked like a dismantled shed had been fly dumped :-o we upset a few spiders as we forced them out of lockdown but in an hour and a half, we had almost cleared the plot and separated the wood to save what was good for reuse and what was good for burning. Kathy and Rakesh enlightened us on the different plants that surrounded us and their herbal properties - invaluable knowledge and later we were rewarded with the sweet taste of Damsons that have ripened. Lovely evening!
