Somehow we avoided the rain showers that had been torrential at times of the day and set off up the (Vaguely) Northern Slopes' gentle incline.

Bramble Farm is run by a collective carrying on a project originally set up with Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall back in 2008 and celebrated 10 years in this Knowle-ledge article. We were helping tidy up for the upcoming Get Growing Garden Trail on Saturday 17th September, when Bramble Farm will be on show along with other projects we support, including Malago's Berry Maze.

Our main mission was to get Abby a lovely profile photo as she's not uploaded one yet... It was hard to keep up with her from the wood shifting to the goat feeding to the leafleting, but we can give her a few options.

Meanwhile, it was bath time for another part of the group, moving a very heavy bath a bit too far and having to move it back a bit. And be told that an 80-year-old had apparently gotten it down the stairs in his home all alone. He must be Superman.

There was much excitement about feeding the pigs and goats, possibly less excitement about cleaning out the Clubhouse and definitely less so for leafletting the local roads with information and the Get Growing Garden Trail whilst on the way back to Queens Square en route to Hoba Kebab for this month's GoodGym Eats.
