An Evening in the Dirt Locker

Wed 24 Nov
Report written by David Mansfield

Our change to Wednesday nights seems to be paying dividends as we had a boost in numbers this week as seven of us took on the short run to the Penrose Roots to Recovery garden. We also got to welcome Gail on her first GoodGym run, give her a cheer!

We had a big job to tackle in the shape of a large mound of dirt that needed shoveling into wheelbarrows and moving to another area. We made a significant dent in the mound and one more visit should get the job done!

The cleared area will make space for an exciting new classrom structure that will help Penrose Roots with their mental health work and provide a space they can hire out to supplement their income and continue their good work.

Help this therapeutic garden thrive

This week we're back at the Penrose Roots to Recovery allotment to lend a hand with the veg plots.

We'll be doing some digging and wheelbarrow runs to move soil from one spot to another. It should be a fun physical wheelbarrow and shoveling relay, we'll get plenty of energy into it and make it a real workout!

Help this therapeutic garden thrive

Peter and William are looking forward to seeing us again and still can't quite believe that we work in the dark so we'll be bringing the light to the garden for this task!

This week we'll be tidying up the orchard and clearing long grass and brambles.

On the way back we will stop for a bit of fitness in Wardown park.

This week we'll be heading off to Wigmore to help in a a bulb planting campaign to inject some colour into the parks and grass verges around Wigmore.

We'll be running the 4km distance to the grass verges outside the Tui building, where local volunteer Peter will kit us out with bulbs and tools, and we'll pop as many in the ground as we can before we head back into town.
