Voluntree action

Sat 2 Apr
Report written by Linda

A treemendous effort from all runners today. We had some big ol’ holes to dig for 10 adolescent trees to be transplanted into the estate. Not an easy task since the soil was rubblesome and many of the stakes were too high. The weather was sunny and snowing and hot and cold all at once. But with the help of much elbow grease, pickaxe action, hoedown throwdowns, a master gardener, digging for victory, croissants and teamwork, we did eventually make the tree-dream work. Looking forwards to seeing these new upstanding fellas flower and flourish over the forthcoming seasons!

Residents and volunteers from The Conservation Volunteers and Goodgym joined forces to dig, shovel, move compost, carry mulch, hammer things, and plant 11 new plum, apple, cherry and pear saplings for a community orchard at Hillgrove, before heading to a second estate location in the afternoon to plant more!

Cooperation Town were also in attendance to talk about setting up local affordable and free food cooperatives, the North Camden Zone organisation offered refreshments and chance to vote on new signage around the estate, and Dr Bike was on hand to doctor some bicycles. A lovely community day!

TrAID and tested

Tue 15 Mar
Report written by Linda

Lots of work and some busy trade down at the Camden TrAID charity shop last night, helping to clear up after their sale and completely restock for the new season! Rob and I, alongside energetic shop staff, helped to pack heavy sacks, offload deliveries, fill trolleys, match shoes, (then unmatch shoes), sweep floor, and restock rails and displays. All in an evening’s work! Pop down into the shop this week to see the fruit of everyone’s labour and maybe even nab some snazzy second hand bargains.

Helping Traid charity shop on Camden clear up after their sale

TRAID is an environmental charity working to tackle and solve the problems caused by producing, consuming and disposing of clothes. The funds are mainly raised through our charity shops which hold five SALES per year. On the last day of the sale we need to clear the shop of leftovers for it to be restocked. The tasks are to take clothes off the hangers, pack the clothes and the hangers, and stored them in the basement.

Regular shop for Ms F. She’s heading to visit family abroad for a while, so has been so busy trying to pack and prep. Glad I was able to help out with water and heavy shop items!

She also wanted some tech help for using her phone for documents, so I helped her practise and write some instructions for herself on how to A) save a PDF and B) take a screenshot. i wish her a safe trip!
