Removing the playhouses at Parkfields Permaculture Community Gardens

Sat 22 Jan

Two semi derelict play houses need to be broken up, and waste metal and plastic stacked ready for collection by council contractors.

We will use a trailer to remove plastic and metal waste which is currently a hazard around the garden. After that we can begin forest school sessions for local children, and permaculture, gardening, art and yoga sessions for adults.

Risks
We will use lump hammers and crowbars to break up two wooden playhouses, then we'll separate the timber, plastic and metal waste ready for collection by council contractors. Wood splinters and nails can scratch, so please wear the gloves provided and take care when breaking up the structures.

Task owner contact is Alan and his number is +44(0) 7770448331.

Can we help Canbury Community Gardens? Yes we can, can, can

Tue 8 Feb 18:45 pm
The Quaker Centre, Fairfield East, Kingston Upon Thames, KT1 2PT
Help this great community space flourish

We do attend here every so often to help Marilyn stay on top of all the tasks that need doing. We will be turning over and chopping up the compost heap, possibly moving some, and cutting back the pathways so it's accessible for all and cutting back branches, brambles and ivy. As well as this ,she always finds something new to keep us on our toes too so watch this space!

Notes
All helpers to bring gloves (please!) and/or sanitize hands thoroughly on arrival so that we can share tools safely. GG helpers will need to have head torches as it will be dark and there are trip hazards.

Location
The community garden is next to Canbury Secret Café in Canbury Gardens, quite near the bandstand which is a visible landmark. Mobile on the evening in case of problems 07905 005 558.

Meeting point at The Quaker Centre, Fairfields East, KT1 2PT at 6.45pm and then we will jog over to the Canbury Community Gardens.

Creating a new community space for Kingston Road Recreation Ground

Mon 31 Jan 18:45 pm
The Quaker Centre, Fairfield East, Kingston Upon Thames, KT1 2PT
Enhance the park for all its visitors

We are needed to help clear some shrubs in front of the new boxing gym next to the children's playground for the Kingston Road Recreation Ground. The bushes are overgrown and need a hard prune so they can grow new shoots in the spring. There may be some litter-picking and weed clearing too. This will benefit the users of the park and being so close to the playground will hopefully create a lovely area for local families.

The Friends of Kingston Road Recreational Ground are very grateful for our assistance. We will be provided will tools for the tasks but don't forget to bring your headtorches and gloves. The waste should be left to the righthand side of the pavilion and Glendale will remove the Green waste the following day. Aaron Way is the contact - 07919 031160

We will meet at The Quaker Centre at 6.45pm and will run 2km up to the Richmond Road Recreation Centre via Bonner Hill Road. We will be meeting Aaron at the entrance of the park opposite Dickerage Lane - if you want to meet us there please leave a message in the comments.

Egg-citing tasks at Parkfields Community garden

Sat 15 Jan
Report written by Rachel White

It was a cold, frosty morning but that didn't stop an intrepid group of GoodGymers head to Parkfields Community Garden to help tackle their jobs list. Two main tasks for the day - to clear the rubbish out from under the fruit trees and add more cardboard as a base layer to stop the weeds AND move the wood chip pile left on the side of the road that had rotted into perfect compost (once the roots, weeds and brambles had been removed) to the orchard. Heavy jobs but we joined other volunteers and kept at it. Adam, Rosanna and first-time GoodGymer Rachel tackled the wood chip pile - removing weeds and getting it ready for transporting whilst the other Rachel and Stella prepared the orchard. The wood chip pile was full of interesting finds including a boiled egg and a roll of tape! Very eggciting. Yes, eggsactly. Eggcellent.

The wheelbarrows were filled multiple times (and we even tried to guess how many runs we had left once the woodchip bag was removed - although we forgot to count so I say we all won that score). The fruit trees will feel the benefit as soon as the compost rots in.

We all felt we'd achieved alot in the time we were there and it was very satisfying to see the progress. Tea was made by Amanda but I don't think we paused to drink it! We have promised to return as they have big plans on how to open it up to the community but lots of prep work needs to be done. We'll see you next week to remove the play sheds.

Big shout out to Rachel on her first ever GoodGym! Hope to see you again soon.
