6 GoodGymmers (We welcomed two new members Mike & Amreet) attended to a community mission to help Marilyn at Canbury Community Gardens. We had few tasks at hand with turning over the compost and gathering spilled over soil into a large bag, weeding the path and watering the vegetables. We had to fight of a few swans whilst using Marilyn's nifty tools and tried method gathering water from the Thames

We were also very lucky to harvest a large variety of tomatoes which we were allowed to take home. I can confirm they were delicious.
