Planting nearly 100 plants at The Arcade in Monday’s moonlight (with the help of head torches and a couple of work lights). But Dancing sounds much more poetic than Planting.
Jack led a Monday night run from Richmond Green to rendezVous with Cathy and Anita at The Arcade, in Buccleuch Gardens, for a herculean planting session under a crescent moon.
An awesome debut from Zoe, who laughed at having to shovel manure on her very first GoodGym mission.
Thank you Zoe, Rebecca, Naomi, Monika, Maena, JP, Jack, Cathy and Anita. You are all awesome.
We have loads of planting to do and a compost area to construct at the Arcade Rockery in Beuccleuch Gardens, Richmond.
Bring gloves and head-torches. Other tools and equipment provided.
JP will be organising a 6.30pm run that will aim reach the Arcade at 7.15pm so watch out for the listing and check the Richmond WhatsApp if you have it.
If you are signing up and you haven't done a mission at The Three Pigeons Plot or The Arcade Rockery before, you are very welcome. And if you'd like to know more about these GoodGym Richmond projects, just leave a message so that Anita can send a bit of background.
A late night session, under the light of Monday's Hunter moon, to shift 5 red pallets donated and delivered by food distribution charity City Harvest, moving them from the Three Pigeons Plot to The Arcade. These will be transformed into compost bays.
Plus a quick watering and weeding session on Friday, mainly to ensure that the plants in The Arcade (waiting to be planted) don't dry out.
Tough Tuesday evening shift at City Harvest to end a gruelling three days. Mainly working in the chiller sorting and crating returns, crating Innocent shots and tidying up. Plus a bit of sun-flower arranging and finally sorting and dating the bread.
Photo taken on the way out is misleading. The camera lies. An ‘Exhausted and Grumpy’ look would have been more honest.
Three Pigeons Plot and Arcade Rockery anytime sessions week ending Sunday 12 September 2021
Anita dropped by in the evening on Monday 6 September ( on the way to the Richmond GG group run in Petersham common) and on Friday 10 September to do some watering. On Friday there were new signs marking the 25 mile point on Sunday’s Richmond Runfest Marathon, which proved a very welcome sight on Anita’s first (and last) marathon.
Plus more work sourcing plants to complete the new planting at the Arcade, with thyme, heucheras, campanula and more on their way.
For anyone free on Monday night who missed out on a place for gnome (and bench) painting for United Response at Harlequin Lodge, this is an alternate Richmond Group Session.
Bring gloves for various gardening tasks at The Arcade Rockery and The Three Pigeons Plot in Beuccleuch Gardens, Richmond. Other tools and equipment provided.
