This is a London-wide charity working to prevent homelessness and help vulnerable and socially excluded people to transform their lives. Their GreenHouse sessions help people reduce isolation and build confidence from being part of something.

TASKS: There are multiple projects on site that we can help with, we have been asked to keep fruit trees free from weeds and well watered, to weed and water the flower beds, which the clients then maintain with sowing and growing variety of wildflowers and help keep paths clear from grass and weeds. If you have hand-forks, trowels or even a large gardening fork, do bring it in:)

TOOLS: Bring gardening gloves, warm and waterproof clothing depending on the weather.

PLEASE NOTE- THERE IS NO ACTUAL POSTCODE FOR THE ALLOTMENT ENTRANCE IT IS AT THE BOTTOM OF GORDON ROAD BETWEEN STAINES ROAD AND LOXFORD LANE. WHAT THREE WORDS = ///rings.charmingly.tones

Litter Picking, Cloche Clearing and Eaves Dropping

Wed 26 Jan
β€’
Report written by Linda

Its always good to be greeted by the Task Owner and clients of the SHP Project. Today some of the group were sitting round the garden table joining in with the Big Garden Bird Watch while others were tacking the never ending weeds.

As an added bonus we were joined by one of GGR's finest Peter who was busy foraging for rubbish from the minute he walked in the gate finding everything from motorcycle accessories (from close by vandalised vehicles) to discarded bits of plastic furniture.

We turned our attention to putting up a notice asking people not to fly tip at the corner of 'our' shed, Peter, Lorena (Task Owner) and Chris (SHP Volunteer) then cleared the cloche of old bedding which involved ingenious use of long sticks and litter pickers in case there were any discarded drug user needles πŸ’‰πŸ˜³ Safety First 😊. We also made plans for moving the planter out of the green house and the shelves from the cloche into the green house. There was a little debate about if an old rusty wheel barrow was suitable to be up-cycled as a planter. Last minute SHP Client Trevor arrived and did a quick fix on the eaves of the shed so they reached the guttering to the water tanks...maybe a bit too quick...note to self, check for leaks next visit. 😬

Before we left Linda and Peter took a look at the vandalised vehicles and Pete took details to report them as we had seen local school kids tempted to pull more bits off them.

Over all it was an enjoyable session quite a bit got done and even more planned for future sessions.
