Tonight seven of us made our way over to lend a hand at Cultivate London.

Cultivate London is an independent social enterprise and charity working to improve employment, education, health and wellbeing of communities in London by improving the natural environment, engaging communities in their green spaces and providing greater access and understanding of community and environmental needs.

Goodgym have been helping at Cultivate's sites in Acton and Isleworth for a while now and we are back at the Salopian Garden in Isleworth next Tuesday.

Auberon the site manager at Cultivate's Acton site set us to work in a couple of groups doing two tasks; filling a skip and sanding and treating some planters made of repurposed pallets.

We were joined by Daniel on his first community mission, having completed a record fast gardening mission with our lovely Natasha a couple of weeks ago. We also welcomed Michelle to her first Hounslow task, great to see you both!

Varnishing Act Emily, Daniel, Michelle and Chris made light work of moving a large pile of unwanted materials and pallets into the skip while Marieke and Michelle G sanded the flower planters and treated them, before everyone got stuck in to finish the job.

Crate work all, looking forward to next week when we head to Salopian on Tuesday and from next Wednesday all being well we should have our standing reservation back at The Old Pack Horse!
