What a way to start a Sunday morning!!
13 of us in total got together with Michael and Jono from Grounded Community to help them make some progress in the Secret Garden 2 plot.
In glorious sunshine we split off into different teams. One team headed off and started to flatten a plot and prepare the are for the installation of a polytunnel. Lots of shoveling and removing a top layer to allow for it to be evened out and then the posts to be put into place.
Another team on the other side had to dismantle three raised flower beds to make room for a row of composter bins made up of discarded pallets...
Another team also tidied up a corner of rotting wood and moved it outside the plot to free up some space.
With 2 hours to play with we had lots of time and the chance to really make some serious progress, compared to when we could only stay for 40mins on groups runs!
As you'll see from the amazing photos we had a lot of fun and managed to so a lot of good!! And we still had the whole weekend ahead of too!!
We're out again this week, this time Thursday evening for a litter pick at Meyrick Park!
Come and join us!!
