This afternoon five Goodgymers went to Thorlands gardens to join in on their weekly "green club" session. Our first task was to clear out a polytunnel so that the rest of the green club participants could fill it with plants. We then moved into the next plot to do a goodgym favourite task - weeding. We cleared away brambles, buddleia and litter. Sam and Natalia sorted out all the green and brown waste ready for composting. Rebecca became an expert with the loppers and Hannah declared war on the bindweed.

We headed home with goodies such as plants, beans and a cheetah toy.
