Taters Gonna Tate
9 GoodGymers made their way 8km to help the Penrose Roots to Recovery in Luton.
- Wednesday, 27th of September 2023

This week the GoodGym Luton team gathered once again at the Town Hall for our weekly Group Run.
We were heading for the Penrose Roots to Recovery allotment project where their team use gardening to engage with people recovering from lives of crime and addiction, give them a place to talk through their issues and help them stay on the right path.
The garden has grown tons of produce this year but one of the heavier jobs, harvesting potatoes, was right up our street.
We set off at dusk with our usual walking and running groups and made it to the garden in good time where we armed ourselves with forks and dug for the buried potato treasure.
Loads of potatoes were uncovered as we made our way across the plot which we had thoroughly prepared for planting back in the spring, so it was nice to return and see the final product!
With all potatoes tucked nicely away in the poly tunnel we headed off to the nearby Wardown Park bandstand for a good stretching session to keep ourselves nice and limber.
