A steady trickle of GoodGymers descended upon Parkwood Springs for this months forest gardening session. We had some GoodGym tourists in attendance; Tom from Leeds and Tim from Bristol. As tourists do, they went on a tour of the forest garden, led by our friendly gardener/worm in-charge , Tim.

We weeded, cut, lopped, chopped, dug and sawed (and chatted) away in the garden for hours; only stopping for a much needed snack and drink (Caroline once again brought home made bread 😋)

On our way back to the starting point we found a fallen tree blocking the path and, being the 'good-deeders' that we are, decided to move it off the path. Aided by a folding saw that our resident gadget mistress had with her 🪒. Extra good deed!
