There’s no AI in team
20 GoodGymers made their way 5.7km to help the South Oxford Community Centre in Oxford.

South Oxford Community Centre is a new task location for us. We're always happy to help Oxford's community centres, so when we received the call for help in their courtyard garden we accepted the task straight away.
We started our session with a topical ice-breaker question: "what do you wish AI would/could do for you?" Answers ranged from the altruistic (solve the global climate crisis) to inspired (call customer services lines for you). Then on to the task...
Despite the bulk bags of compost not arriving we had plenty to do - we did lots of weeding the edges of the courtyard, pots, planters, and the long border. We then topped up the compost from some smaller sacks, watered, and topped off with shredded bark. Meanwhile Ben and Trev built a compost bay, and a few of us moved the picnic benches so that they could be used more easily.
We were grateful for cold drinks and chocolate biscuits as refreshments, and had a lovely run along the river before and after.
We'll be back in a few weeks to finish the job once the elusive compost arrives!
