Stormz - treez musketeers
6 runners ran to help the Tree musketeers in Hackney.
- Saturday, 29th of February 2020
- Led by Helena
A small group of GoodGymers braved the strong gust and wet weather from storm Jorge at the Hackney marshes nursery armed with waterproofs and enthusiasm.
Liz, our amazing TM, divvied out the tasks to the super sextet; Abi, Amanda, Danny, Kat, Toyin and Helena.
We shoveled the compost heap giving it a good airing out and sieved through looking for bits of plastic and rocks, careful not to disturb the hibernating grass snake in a nearby heap.
We also did some pot weeding with a cool gardening gadget which could easily double up as an elephant nose picker.
Toyin, Amanda and Helena were tasked with washing the lattice shaped plant 'Air-pots' which unique design encourages healthy root development and maximise aeration.
After a hard morning's work, Liz invited us to have a lovely cuppa and choccy biccies as we listened to the pounding rain on the polytunnel.
In all, a brilliant and productive session.
