One key task is moving some flytipped waste to a skip - so a bit of a grizzly task but hopefully satisfying. There’ll also be some lighter activities for those who prefer.
Getting the gardens ready for the family friendly Wassail later that day.
Wow, Emily has completed a 12 month mission streak. That means they've cleared gardens, moved furniture and changed light bulbs in spring, summer, autumn and even winter. Show your support and give them a massive cheer!
On our first DOUBLE DEED of the year (January challenge standard), we made our way to our newest task at St. John's Church in Canton.
Our first time here, we were welcomed by Chris who is also going to be using us for another new task next Saturday helping to set up the new community garden at Riverside Health Centre. All part of the wonderful Grow Cardiff's 'Grow Well project'
But back to the task at hand, Andrew was looking after this task and arrived with boxes of bulb and rhizomes. We introduced ourselves as he explained that we were planting in the crescent of the Church land to create an inclusive community garden for everyone to use and enjoy. Some of the local residents had already planted some so we were playing catch up.
We planted a few different things, bluebells, snake's head (fritillaries) and something that looked like twiglets. In just under an hour we had planted everything that had been given to us, so a quick group photo and now we hope for good weather so that they can grow.

We will be helping to set up the community garden at St Johns Church Canton, they have hundreds of bulbs that need doing - expect a repeat task to be set up!
