5 goodgymers met Marvelous Maria and her dog at the Common Ground Community Garden, where the task was to clear all grass and weeds out from an area adjacent to the pavement ready for the planting of a new lavender hedge. The task looked daunting but the Sun was shining and in typical GG style we all got straight to work and finished the first clear of the bed in the two hours, and even had time to start planting up. Looking forward to seeing and smelling the lavender grow in the coming months.
