9 Goodgymers joined about 100 people to plant almost 600 Trees, which this week in total for the Oxford projects, will join 2,500 trees planed in various locations in our city! Woop woop and wow! :)

The trees we planted today were Oak, Wayfarer, Birch, Spindle, White beam, Hazel, and Cherry, and form part of the recreation field behind Rose Hill Community Center.

GoodGymers welcomed, dug, planted, moved Mulch.. “Mulch Ado about Nothing”, “It’s All About the Mulch ‘bout the Mulch, no trouble”! We watched the Nepalese Community in Rose Hill describe how to plant trees in their native language to those who didn’t speak English! <3 We also ate biscuits and drank coffee.. Ben joined us for his birthday.. Epic thing to do.. Happy Birthday Ben.. I believe he planted 15 or possible closer to 20 trees in the end!

Welcome to our new GoodGymers! Emily, Dylan and Welcome back to a few familiar faces great to see John with his young family. Sometimes other things get in the way of coming to GoodGym every week!! it was amazing to see you all.

Thanks all for coming, it was a frosty and sunny way to start off our Christmas build up and I hope these trees will be here for a good number of years for people to enjoy!
