Where the Wild Stings Are

Wed 1 Sep
Report written by Vicky

Great turn out for tonight's mission of more clearing of the wildlife area. Mitch and Debs took on tree sawing part 2, trying not to injure Amy T whilst doing so. Others cleared brambles and nettles and the raised beds are now obvious again.

After 75 minutes the wildlife area was much tamer so we celebrated with some of Barbara's birthday fridge cake and some smiles from baby Freddie.

Cone and get it

Thu 26 Aug
Report written by Michal Czekajlo

We were asked to help York Archaeological Trust to clear the way for their next community excavation taking place at Willow House on Walmgate this autumn.

Helen, the task owner, and her friend welcomed and briefed us on the task.

Collect the cones to the bin bag - Helen

Nothing goes to waste and the pine cones will be used for a project with children. The main focus was on tidying up the car park area, making it ready for welfare facilities to go in. The other task involved removing weeds and other vegetation along the path leading to the building entrance.

To keep us motivated Helen brought some biscuits, bottled water and red gardening gloves which nicely matched with our t-shirts.

After 40 minutes of serious cones picking, shovelling, sweeping, trimming and weeding the car park looked a lot better and ready for the Archeology on Prescription events.

Watch this space, as we may be going back in the near future to tidy up the front garden.

Clearing the way

Thu 26 Aug 18:45 pm
Willow House, Walmgate, York, YO10 4UP
Enable local people to take part in an archeological excavation engagement

We were asked to help York Archaeological Trust to clear the way for their next community excavation taking place at Willow House on Walmgate this autumn.

The community dig will offer locals an exciting opportunity for excavation engagement through a brand new Archaeology on Prescription programme taking place in the Willow House grounds from September 2021.

Before the project can begin GoodGym will step it to clear the now overgrown garden to reveal the dig site amongst the buddleias and brambles that have reclaimed the land.

We need a team of people with their best digging, lopping and pruning hats on ready to get stuck in and cut down/ remove the bushes. All the gardening tools will be provided and YAT staff will be ready to greet us on arrival. All they need from us is some people power to help their small team push the task along.

Please note, the site has had some previous issues with drug use and we have been made aware that needles could be present in the garden. There is a risk assessment in place to manage this and any found needles will be dealt with by YAT staff. However, participants should be aware of the possibility of finding discarded needles and be ready to alert YAT staff to these should they spot them.

Root Wars!

Wed 11 Aug
Report written by Amy Cawson

9 GG Yorkies met on a glorious* Yorkshire evening to help Danesgate School overhaul their reception/front garden. This was GG’s 3rd visit to the school and there was still a lot of work to do. The area was so overgrown the roots were longer than Mitch!

Viking Vicky and Emma attacked the bramble roots with force and a few blueberry plants may have been hurt in the massacre. Leanne, Pork Belly (Paul) and Mitch lopped to their hearts content taking down the overhanging bushes. Whilst Cara and Liz fought with the wildly ivy. Fergie dog had a great wheelbarrow ride with Ed.

There’s still some unfinished business with those pesky roots so no doubt we’ll be back again!

Danesgate School front garden last episode (I am Team GB)

Wed 11 Aug 18:45 pm
Danesgate School, Fulford Cross, York, YO10 4PB
Weed free and welcoming school front garden

We have been to this location twice over the past couple of months, however the task of weeding, preparing space for new plants and general sweep and tidy up was too big to accomplish, plus some of the weeds have grown back.

Today will be our last visit with the intention to trim back thorny brambles, remove unwanted weeds, lay some more landscape fabric to prevent weeds from growing back and make the school garden looking beautiful.

We need you and your positive energy to make this happen.

Please bring your gardening gloves.

Meet at the school gate.
