8 GG Yorkies met in the park to commence part 2 of the great digventure.
Before we got to work, we welcomed Liz to her first task - give her a big cheer! 📣 The task itself was to continue digging roots out from a previously nettled verge of the picnic area to prepare it for some pollinating wild flowers.
There was some initial reluctance to use any of the many mattocks we'd been provided with and most opted for spades and forks. However, those brave enough to give them a try were soon mattock converts.
Where the previous group had opted for quantity over quality, this time we were encouraged to dig deeper to get as many of the roots (and butter knives) out of the ground as we could.
In the space of an hour, we made great progress and were ready to hand the land over to another group of GG Yorkies who are booked to finish the task later in the week.
