Homeless Shelter Garden Clear Out

Wed 19 May 19:00 pm
16/ 18 Upper Tollington Road, London, N4 3EL
Come and help provide this shelter with a green space its residents can actually use

PLEASE BRING FACEMASKS, GARDENING GLOVES, YOUR OWN SECAUTERS/ GARDEN TROWEL (IF POSSIBLE). THANKS

I'm not going to lie, this is meant to be a big job. Sounds like a very large garden that has been left to its own devices for far too long so some good old school weeding/ pruning/ tree surgery/ landscaping needed. It's a new task for GGHaringey. Join us!

Our good weed for the day

Sat 15 May
Report written by John Shirley

A super sextet headed over to Highbury Quadrant to continue the good work we've carried out over many months on behalf of the redoubtable Fran. It was an early start but even Sam nearly made it on time. Paul and John renewed acquaintances, having been inseparable GoodGymers at one time. Eilidh travelled only a short distance, while Katriona came from Scotland - though not today. Beth arrived full of joy following her recent race success.

First we had to move some bags of soil by wheelbarrow, from the wall plot to another area. We knew they'd be heavy, because it was GoodGym who'd carted them to the wall plot when they first arrived. That part of the task was soon done and we then spread the soil out and levelled it.

We also spread some black sheeting over another bed to deny the weeds any sunshine, while other weeds were tugged out by the now-experienced hands of GoodGymers. Beth found a bone, though it might not have been human.

Having inadvertently continued over our allotted time, we returned the tools, said "au revoir" to Fran and headed off in different directions with most of our Saturday still ahead of us.

Spotting Spindleberries

Wed 28 Apr
Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

On Wednesday evening, a top group of local Goodgym folks narrowly avoided an afternoon of heavy rain to join Frannie from Octopus Community Network and Area Activator Simon at Market Road Gardens. This ongoing permaculture garden project has been looking really lovely recently, and the plants certainly appreciated some much needed rainfall.

The tricky thing about wild gardening is working out how much curation we should introduce to the site, and how much we should leave to grown naturally. The space has become overrun with thistles, which started to push aside the other plants and bushes (including some new saplings). So our Goodgymmers picked up our forks, spades and wheelbarrows to filter a few to maintain a mixed and varied garden space. All the green waste was then moved to a hugelkultur bed towards the back of the gardens, ready to be composted for next season.

Wonderful work everyone! We'll be back again soon!
