Zen raking and the art of a silver birch border

Sat 17 Apr
Report written by Bethan Greenaway

This afternoon eleven (10 beautifully on time, one sprinting in sweaty and late) goodgymers descended on the Children's Allotment. We were greeted by the lovely Alice and her snazzy new blackboard full of tasks for us to get stuck into. A lot of these tasks built on work that previous goodgym sessions had started.

Splitting into appropriately socially distanced teams we sawed logs, spread woodchip (we are experts), unearthed bramble roots, watered fruit plants, spread and raked top-soil, sowed grass seed and finished the construction of the silver-birch border around some plant beds.

It was such a fantastic way to spend an afternoon. The sun shone, we discussed the zen-like nature of raking, discovered smutty labels on the top soil bags and at the end had a well-earned rest in the allotment hammock. We are already looking forward to out session in May - soon to be listed, keep your eyes peeled.

A huge welcome to Jo joining a group run for the first time - we hope to see you again soon!

On a beautiful Saturday morning I headed down to the Leys Health Centre ready for another morning vaccination shift. The shift ran like clockwork and everything felt very calm and serene - it truly is a well oiled machine now!

Marston Forest Garden

Sun 9 May 10:00 am
Marston Forest Garden, Court Place Allotments, Boults Lane, Oxford, OX3 0PW
Tree love

Marston Forest Garden is in the Court Farm Allotment area, a short walk from Marston Community Garden and part of the same communal gardening project.

Tasks will be similar to our previous visits - digging, clearing brambles - definitely putting the 'Gym' into GoodGym!

In accordance with the current COVID-19 restrictions we will divide into smaller groups of 8 or less to work.

Please bring your own gardening gloves. It is usually very muddy on site, so wellies are advised, and definitely wear clothes you don't mind getting mucky! Tools will be provided.

Meeting point is at the end of Boults Lane, by the recreation ground. The Forest Garden is in Court Farm Allotments so we will walk from the recreation ground to the plot together.

Trash Mob

Wed 14 Apr
Report written by Anwen Greenaway

The East Oxford Plog Mob!

While our friends took on a task in Botley the East Oxford team tooled up with litter pickers and bags for a good plog.

The churchyard next door to the food bank where we've spent our winter Wednesdays has a litter problem, and now that the evenings are light it felt like high time we tackled it.

Alongside the usual detritus of masks, cans, pants, takeaway containers, lambrini bottles and condoms, we also found a broom/mop, car battery, several glass tumblers, a Santa mug, and jump leads.

It was good to see the nature reserve thriving having last done a task there all the way back in 2019.

A pack of superheroes

Wed 14 Apr
Report written by Anwen Greenaway

The wonder team packed 38 of the regular Wednesday night Oxford Mutual Aid food parcels, 7 Emergency Parcels, and also delivered 9 of the parcels to addresses around Cowley.

It was super busy and we only just managed to get everything done in our shift, so BIG thanks to the dream team. So grateful for your patience, hard work and good humour as we adjust to our new Oxford Mutual Aid shift.

Food parcels 28.4.21

Wed 28 Apr 16:30 pm
Richard Benson Hall, 276 Cowley Rd, Oxford, OX4 1UR
Packing and delivery

We have 2 tasks in East Oxford tonight. This is the early shift at Oxford Mutual Aid, and there will also be a litter pick starting at 6:15pm. It should be feasible to make it to both if you want a full evening of GoodGyming (as long as we hurry through the parcel packing!)

The majority of the time on this task will be based inside Richard Benson Hall preparing the food parcels. We will then deliver a parcel or two each at the end of the session. I have requested that all of our deliveries are within a 15 minute walk of the hall.

Please wear a mask.

Marston Community Garden

Sun 2 May 10:00 am
Croft Road, Oxford, OX3 0JZ
Help maintain local wildlife and biodiversity

Marston Community Garden (MCG) is a community-run allotment on the Court Farm allotments site. People from the local area can adopt a raised bed of their own or help with gardening tasks. It's a great way to get involved with gardening even if people can't commit to a whole allotment of their own.

In addition to their main allotment site, MCG have expanded to have a chicken coup, an orchard and a new Community Wood on New Marston Recreation Ground plus much more.

We have been asked to help maintain their young trees in the community woodland area. The site is just off Croft Road in Marston.

Please bring your own gardening gloves. Any tools required will be provided.
