Help finish what we started last time


Anthony and Rachel at St Michael's Primary school would like us to come back and apply the second coat of the fence in their pre-school area.

You don't have to be a painting pro to sign up!

This time we'll know to stir the paint pots properly before starting!

Please don't wear your favourite clothes as they WILL get paint on them... We'll meet at the Somerville road entrance to the school at 6pm and get as much done as possible in an hour. Rachel has lots of paint brushes for us to use so you shouldn't neet to bring anything along other than your fantastic personality!

Bonus for cycling or running there!

If lots of us sign up, we'll have a gardening group too!

Weed(ing) Party

Tue 8 Jun
Report written by Manuel Laurijssen

With the hot evening sun on our backs we got together in the Oak visitor car park ready to walk into our weeding challenge for the evening. Before that we welcomed a new face to the GoodGym family in Ben. Please give him a cheer and follow! What a great addition Ben is going to be!

A guided walk through the school grounds brought us to the sports field and the location of where the weeding party would take place.

A planting area outside the gym was snapped up by Lea, Daryl and Neil. This was to be the place where the wildflowers would be sowed. In hope that it would bring a bit of colour to the area.

Ben, Keith, Sean, Hannah, my colleague Ollie and his partner Claudia headed over to the massive sand pit to tackle all the weeds somehow finding enough nutrients in the sand.

We improvised wheelbarrows by using old, super stylish pink curtains from my house. Loading them up and then slinging them into the underbrush for them to have their weed party in the bushes last night. Finally back together again after dispersing in the sand. Who knew weeds could socially distance better than many humans!?!?

The wildflower group dug up a few boulders and metal rods, no dangerous utensils thank goodness.

The sandpit gang finished with a whole lot of sand in hard to reach places...but we all left feeling a sense of achievement and with a better tan too.

Thank you so much for all your help in making a place I see everyday, that much more inviting. And I'll walk by each area and remember your visit with gratitude!

Another task next week Thursday....and we'll be painting so please check the website!!

Lea and Keith I hope your backs aren't too sore for your double day volunteering marathon on Brownsea!!

Good luck to Daryl this weekend who is going through sweeper training at the Crafty Fox Half on Sunday, and Nicola, John, Karen and Charlotte who will be hoping they don't get swept up!!

Gardening at LeAF Studio School

Tue 8 Jun 17:15 pm
LeAF Studio School, Oak Academy Car Park, Duck Lane, Bournemouth, BH11 9JJ
It will help the school keep on top of weeds and overgrowth

I work at LeAF studio school, which is a sports specialist school. Part of their grounds have a huge sandpit on it that was used during the Olympics for the Beach Volleyball events.

We've cleared a lot of the weeds on it, but they are slowly coming back, so we need to do some clearing. Along with that we will be clearing some other areas and planting wildflower seeds to add a bit more life and colour to the area.

If you have any gloves AND gardening tools you could bring along that would be amazing. Forks in particular as well as metal rakes too.

We will meet in the Oak Academy car park which will be open. As you come through the gates, turn right into the visitors section of the car park. From there we will walk through together.
