Under grey skies GoodGym Oxford returned to Oxford City Farm- this time no apple press in sight!

After a warm welcome from Phil (from the farm) we headed over to our plot of land to begin clearing brambles and preparing the ground. Not only would this provide safety for the farms resident chickens from Fantastic Mr Fox, but there are also plans for it to be turned into a soft fruit/tree space and a space for groups to use.

As always with Good Gymers there was great energy and soon the area was de-brambled and the first layer of woodchip could be unloaded. This was all done against the backdrop of watching a group of excited children trying to get a hold of one of the sizeable chickens!

We were treated to mugs of warm tea and amazing home made mushroom soup (which went down a treat) and we were able to also meet the farms well loved sheep trio!

We'll be returning to the farm in December!
