As the British Telecoms ads used to say: "it's good to talk" - with the hoarse voice of Bob Hoskins, that ad stuck around. And the reason being is because it's true; felt like a small window into the before times on Saturday, it was indeed - good to talk.
Myself, Paula, Paul and Chris helped out at Kieran's community garden on a usually grey Winter's day. Paula and I washed the polytunnel, allowing more light to penetrate though to the plants inside. We ended up absolutely soaked, myself in particular, a poor grasp of fluid mechanics can be dangerous. Paul and Chris diligently painted the front door, classic black, can't go wrong with that. After that a bit of pot prepping, for the kids at the primary school, they'll then fill them with seeds and pass them back, an efficient system. Finally we prepped a bed made in 1987, sams age as me, with lots of delicious fertiliser bits; first in horse shit and then the fish bone and blood.
Was a proper pleasure to see you lot - we'll be back to big group dynamics soon, just the final push now.

"The founding goal of GET OUT is to use environmental education to strengthen the connection between Tower Hamlets' young people and the natural world. "
The knowledgeable Kieran will be there to offer instructions and permaculture/gardening tips.
