We weed’n the garden

Sat 10 Oct
Report written by Bristol runner

Legs 11! Bingo! 11 goodgymers found their way to Golden Hill Community Garden for some weeding action on a lovely sunny, if slightly chillier day than late.

What a load of tools! Choosing our weapon we set to work either weeding a path, around some raised beds or an area of ground making sure to separate the weeds. It was lovely to catch up with everyone doing a worthwhile task and the time flew by. After an hour weed made a big difference and after picking from veg that was going spare we made our way to enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Thanks for the extra pictures that I forgot to take and weed like to be back again soon. Until next time 🙂

There is lots of weeding for us to do. Golden Hill Community Garden is a great place and is an area in Bristol we don’t visit that often so come along. The entrance is on Monk Road. Weed love to see you there :)

Golden Hour

Thu 24 Sep
Report written by Shona Buchanan

Even though it was suddenly a cold day, the sun was shining when we all eventually found our way to the hidden gem which is Golden Hill Community Garden and Allotments. It was great to have Rebecca and Becki join us for the first time, as well as Emma who is a long-time coach runner who is finally getting the chance to join some group sessions too. Lovely to meet you all!

We were met by Lucy who explained to us that due to herself being furloughed and minimum volunteers over the past 6 months, the garden has got very overgrown. We were split into three groups to tackle weeding in various forms: the pond-path weeders, the take-it-all-out path weeders, and the flower-bed knowledge-of-what-is-what-required weeders. While the third group scratched our heads over dandelions, grasses and flowers, everyone got to work clearing the paths, and filling a wheelbarrow and four troughs of weeds in an hour. Impressive! We headed on our ways as the sun starting dipping. Look forward to seeing you all soon!

Returning to clean the Ardagh Community Courts!

Sun 5 Jul

We originally visited Ardagh with a team of 6 on Sunday 28th, and whilst we cleaned one of the larger courts, there are still 10 to do!

I've set a limit of 10, so two teams of 5 people can tackle a court each, and will keep listing until we've finished all the courts.

Bring your own gloves! Shovels, wheelbarrows and stiff brushes provided, plenty of room on the court for social distancing.

Free tea and coffee after from the lovely Horfield cafe people!
