Weeding Frenzy

Tue 11 May
Report written by Michael Pirrie

Last night we returned to one of our regular projects at Sloane Court, its been amazing to see how much this garden has transformed since we've been involved with it. This time we were doing some weeding to keep everything in order and looking good.

We split into two groups of three, one group tackled the rear garden and the other the front. Frances, Jason and Susan did an amazing job clearing the patio in the front garden of weeds and then got to work on the planting bed, clearing all the unwanted plants. Although I think Susan and Frannie did more of the work as Jason indulged in some of our hosts stories, if you've never heard them you should he has led a fascinating life.

Rosie and Diego spent the evening clearing the main bed at the rear we've been working on for a while now and it's starting to look great ready for the growing season. I weeded the patio at the rear that we've also done a lot of work to clear over the years.

All in all it was really satisfying to keep the gardens in good order and some of the areas are really starting to take shape. No doubt we will be back to soon to continue the work!

to help local residents look after communal space

The Palmeira and Adelaide Squares gardening group have been busy maintaining this lovely space for the enjoyment of all residents and passers by. They have established a Garden Fund to raise money for green spaces through events and other channels. They are a Community Interest Company with the aims of caring for the gardens and promoting environmental and social initiatives. The squares are large so they can always use a little bit of extra help from Goodgym to keep on top of things.

Although it did hail, we did not bail!

Wed 5 May
Report written by Tara Shanahan

When is it going to warm up?! Not tonight at least as we were treated to a heavy hail storm as we helped resident Stuart weed the rose bushes of Palmeira Square! Katharine, Diego & Amro were particularly hard core as they kept going during the heaviest down pours whilst David and I looked on admiringly from under the partial shelter of a clump of trees!

But whilst the temperatures were low, our spirits remained high as we chatted away as we worked. I even managed to have my first ever Spanish conversation with an actual Spanish person! Thank you Diego for your patience.

Still lots to do at Palmeira, its a big area with only one council gardener covering several other seafront squares so Stuart is very grateful for our help and we will be making regular visits over the summer.

Sherman and Robin: Issue 100!

Tue 27 Apr
Report written by Michael Pirrie

Last night we returned to Palmeira Square which we hadn't visited for a while and was in need of a bit of TLC! Our main task was to clear the weeds that had built up all along the pathways, a tricking task that required some good hoeing skills. We welcomed John for his first ever task and he got stuck straight into the weeds and made light work of a long path. We were also joined by Sherman who was completing is 100th task! Sherman joined us all the way from Honk Kong not long after we started in Brighton and has been a regular ever since, most notable for his excellent photography despite his often sweaty subjects! A big milestone that takes a lot of commitment to reach, so well done Sherman look forward to seeing your wings soon! That commitment seemed to inspire some of the local residents who joined in clearing the paths, most notably a couple of very friendly Robins, although I think their motivation was more related to their stomachs. We each took up different areas of the square and by the end had a made a huge change to the paths and finished off with some litter picking here and there to bring some order back to the square. We will be heading back their next week to continue the improvements!

The three Ps of Goodgym: Painting, Picking and Pizza!

Tue 13 Apr
Report written by Michael Pirrie

Despite the unusually cold weather at this time of year eight Brighton Goodgymmers braved it to go back to one of our favourite tasks at Elm Grove. We've been working on this area for a few years now clearing up the litter and painting over graffiti. There's been ample time in lockdown for people to undo a lot of our good work so there was plenty to get on with! We split into three groups two litter picking and one painting over the graffiti. The large group made light work of the graffiti covering a big wall that has built up over the last few months. The second group tackled the regular task of clearing the murky bushes outside the almshouses which always offer a trove of undesirable treasures. Not a fun task but really worthwhile and has transformed the area since we first came. Myself and the task organisers traipsed up and down the hills of Hanover to clear some particularly dirty streets of litter. Afterwards a few of us hung around for some alfresco pizza and remembered what it was like to socialize!
