This mountainous task did not make us feel bashful

Mon 21 Jun
Report written by Michal Czekajlo

Today we have made another attempt at eradicating Himalayan Balsam from the woodland on the eastern side of Hob Moor.

The task owner instructed us that everything else, except the Balsam is good for the habitat and has to stay, so we were extra careful not to remove ever so stinging nettles and the sticking to your clothes weeds.

Are we removing the sticky weed too? - Louise

Wearing her wellingtons and not deterred by nettles, our new member Nicola was straight at it. Give her a big cheer!

We pulled the plants from under the trees and midst of thorny brambles, then carried them to custom made alfresco areas to create piles in an effort to make these areas less appealing to congregate at.

As we were scattered across the woodland various conversations took place and people seized the opportunity to catch up face to face with so many at the same time.

Balsam bashing is like gardening sex – Vicky

Paul was celebrating his 200th good deed. Achieving 200 good deeds is not an official mile stone on the GG website, nevertheless deserving recognition. High five Paul for making a difference so many times!

After one hour of native species conservation some of us still had the energy for a hill reps session. Running and walking up the 200 metres long ascent was fun and we even had some racing on. Stretching after the running was a great time for a chat about future events and other things GoodGym.

Well done to everyone involved with the task and participating in the training session! See you at Glen Allotments next Monday - It will be listed on the web tomorrow morning (Tue 22 June).
