We’d like to move it move it - a whole new meaning of weeding..

Sat 22 Jan
Report written by Imy Hopkins

It was a frosty but sunny Saturday morning in Cardiff and 8 Goodgymers headed to help out at Global Gardens. The main planned task was moving some flytipped waste to a skip so we were in for a bit of a workout. Also we discovered that on top of the fly tipped waste, sometime over Friday night, individuals had disposed of many dubious plants that definitely wouldn’t be grown at Global Gardens (and were the inspiration of the title puns)..

We started off moving the fly tipped waste out of bags and into various combinations of wheelbarrows, buckets and other bags to heave the stuff into a big skip at the other end of the gardens. Polly optimistically commented that it was like a lucky dip although I don’t think you’d get many takers willing rummaging around the mix of alcohol bottles, slippers and other abandoned items.

Once the fly tipped waste was moved, there was debate about what to do with the incriminating plants and bin bags.. Since the gardens were hosting a family friendly Wassail later that day, it was decided it was best to move them. As with the other waste we made the same journeys to the skip, getting in plenty of steps for the day and catching up on what people had been up to in January so far.

In no time at all, everything was moved and the entrance to the gardens was looking a lot more tidy and clear without all the bags of rubbish. Polly finished by inviting anyone to come to the Wassail and we then took the obligatory group photo in the now cleared patch of grass.

Overall it was a lovely, if not slightly unexpected way to spend a Saturday morning!

Welcome Back to Global Gardens

Sat 22 Jan 10:30 am
Global Gardens Project Allotment, Heath, Cardiff, CF14 3NE
Improve access to the community garden

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.

Chair-eeo for now

Tue 14 Dec
Report written by Michael

Tonight was the last run for the year to help out the 'Forget Me Not Cafe' at St. Edwards Church, the wonderful group that provide a friendly and welcoming environment, suitable for people with memory problems and their carers also people recovering from a stroke or people who feel isolated and vulnerable.

A simple task tonight, to put back the chairs and a quick vacuum after the final meeting for the 'Forget Me Not' group.

The group ran a good 2.5 km to the task, then masked up we got straight to work. We made short work of it, and as soon as it was back to the usual, we were spoiled with Ferraro Rochette chocolates (other chocolates are available).

As we were finished, and we had been treated to chocolate, it seemed only fair that we take a detour adding some kms to our return trip. A lovely run around a park, and a slightly longer run back and we were done - with an impressive 7.25 km tonight.

Just the ONE group task remaining this year - and just the ONE space remaining.

Still additional community missions on the weekends though, Stargarallot, Junior Parkrun & flyering
