Five Goodgym members came together to help the Tarling Road community centre in East Finchley. Nicky and I met for a 2 km run to the venue, Kirsten cycled from work, Cloud and Jessica ran from home. We met Dansulia, Jon and Leo who helped direct the work we did to clean up the garden. We litter picked, pruned, pulled weeds, and dug up the soil. Leo was a wealth of knowledge and we learned a few things about some of the plants. When finished Leo took us on a tour of the rest of the gardens. Much appreciated and learnt! Thanks for coming running cycling and doing some good!
