Not just a Good Friday, an Awesome Friday!

Fri 2 Apr
Report written by Melanie Young

Bright and early on a bank holiday, some people like to have a lie in and others want to get out of bed and do something less boring instead.

Like go to the farm and chop/rake compost and then feed the sheep, new ewe and Pip the Pygmy goat, whilst saying hello to Haze, the cow.

New You?

Good Friday Farm Frolics

Fri 2 Apr 08:00 am
Windmill Hill City Farm, Philip Street, Bedminster , Bristol , BS3 4EA
Helping a local community farm

Are you finding it hard to motivate yourself in the morning? Come and join us for a end of the week morning dose of goodness at Windmill Hill City Farm.

Early morning, fresh air, walking/running/cycling (or however else you travel), volunteering, animals (and people, if you like them - socially distanced of course) - what a great way to start your day!

We'll be levelling the middle paddock so the livestock can move in to the space with the funky new viewing building :-)

Tidying the path around middle paddock

Fri 5 Mar
Report written by Jade Cahill

Four GoodGymers met at Windmill Hill city farm on a sunny but chilly Friday morning.

We all worked together to clearing the path around the middle paddock- this involved raking leaves, weeding, removing sticks and any other remaining rubbish.

Volunteering at the farm has been such a joy during difficult times. The fresh air, the exercise, the chatter, the animals and a whole lot of Goodgym goodness :)

The farm is planning to lay a new gravel path along their animal paddocks so we will scrape off the old surface material and prepare the paths for their make-over. Expect a decent workout for our arms and upper body ;)

Spacing things up

Fri 26 Feb
Report written by Bristol runner

On this lovely Friday morning, 6 GoodGym runners returned to the farm to help with getting a paddock ready for the sheep to return. After a quick assessment of which tools might work best to break up the lumps of compost/manure and spread them evenly across the pasture, some opted for rakes and others of shovels. Despite some warming rays of sun breaking through the clouds, the ground was still a bit frosty and the air surprisingly cold. Swift raking and shoveling warmed us up and the paddock looked fabulous when we were finished (although the untrained eye might have thought the opposite was true as the green was now covered in sh*t) .

Big shout out to Danielle, who completed her first ever good deed with this task. She was, of course, rewarded with some goat cuddles.

Great job everyone!

Goat-o shoot

Fri 19 Feb
Report written by Melanie Young

The Feel Good Factor was HUGE at Windmill Hill City Farm this morning - a full set of GoodGymmers including Aldi's first ever GoodGym task, returner Anna and back-from Kingston Grace and a whole host of Bristol regulars.

We scraped the path, levelled out the scrapings and we’re then asked if we’d like to join a goat photo shoot, or goat-o shoot for short. Would we ever?!

Shree took charge* of Pip the Pygmy Goat and we were soon** striking a pose for the animal of the week preparation.

With enormous grins on our faces and endorphins from the physical work, we’d made new friends and had the perfect start to the day, all before 9am!

Pip took charge of Shree *Quite a long time later

Day of concrete

Fri 12 Feb
Report written by Bristol runner

On a chilly Friday morning, 6 GoodGym runners gathered to remove the top layer of a footpath around Windmill Hill City Farm. Given the frosty weather one may assume this mission was doomed to be a day of defeat as the topsoil was frozen and hard as concrete. Nevertheless, the GoodGymers set about tackling the icy path with spats and shovels and sure enough soon found a technique combining sheer force, the right angle of leverage, and additional help of using one's (frozen) foot a sledgehammer to chip away on the concrete-like material. A tough job that will have to be continued once the weather is a bit warmer.
