Back to Aldermoor Community Farm again this evening where Richard had plenty of compost to keep us going. We set to work in two teams to move the compost from the bins in the poly tunnel to the outdoor compost bins. Our new lights from Energise Me helped us get the task done safely in the dark. We trialed a few techniques to get the compost out but trowelling into big plant pots seemed to be the best one. Wilson was first to hop into the compost bin which also helped speed us up! Great to welcome Janet, a seasoned GoodGymer, to her first session with Southampton. I celebrated my 100th good deed again, after reaching the official milestone last week with Portsmouth GoodGym, and modelled our Southampton wings. Can’t wait to see who will don them next!
