On the weekend, that we see the return of junior parkrun, 22 GoodGym members took part in (not)parkrun Coventry. Hopefully you spotted as many signs of spring as I did on my run. New shoes, tulips, daffodils and lambs were the order of the day on a bright but cold day.
Team Springboard offer training, work experience and volunteering opportunities in practical horticulture. They believe that working outside in a natural environment helps to reduce social isolation and improves wellbeing. It also provides the opportunity to learn new skills.
We have visited their allotment before and will be supporting the team with their plans to move areas around, gravity fed irrigation, raspberries, planting asparagus etc.
Please ensure you have gloves with you.
Goodgym sprung into action with a return to the Springboard community allotment where there is always plenty to do.
Jackie, Graeme and Vickie set to work on a gigantic raised bed. Meanwhile Laura and Lil cleared some old beds of weeds and covered the soil in straw. Esther, as usual, shared her expertise and knowledge with the goodgym team. This week, we found out all about asparagus. The team got lots done and rain managed to hold off for the duration.
