7 well prepared goodgymmers equipped with extra gardening tools met at the Urban Garden, an ongoing project planned by E2 Online, building the dream for nature and local community to enjoy the beautiful garden in the middle of an estate in Leicester.

Today's main task was to complete the showstopper steps filling with gravel and Stu wanted to make some adjustments to improve them further.

I was suprised to see Jimmy and Jeanette had made a dead hedge from all the dead sticks and leaves to encorage the wildlife whilst being somewhere to put the waste. They've inspired me to make one in my own garden at half term, it looked great.

We celebrated our January Challenge success with home baked blueberry muffins, and obviously a cup of char, as Jimmy says.

Before we knew, it was the end of the session and the steps were completed, the team are making such a big difference to get the Urban Garden into shape, weldone team smashing work again!
