A step (or 4) in the right direction

Sat 19 Jun
Report written by Bath runner

We were back again at St Martins Garden school to continue transforming a previously neglected area of land into a garden school. Andy, the organiser, had high expectations for the group - clearing a patch of scrubby land for a new wooden teepee and installing some steps on a slope leading to the garden school area.

We divided into two teams: Andy, Emily and Rachel tackling the steps, whilst Mary, Ruth, Sam and Max fought their way to the scrubland.

The steps team soon got into a rhythm - sawing a large sleeper in two with a slightly inadequate bow saw, digging a channel in the earth with a slightly scary mattock, hammering rebar rods in place with Andy's brand new sledge hammer and finally backfilling with soil to make the step even. Hard work but the end result was very satisfying with a neat set of 4 steps leading down to the garden school area.

Meanwhile the clearing team had been attacking the tall shrubs with loppers, and digging up roots, clearing the plot so that a barrier membrane can be laid down in anticipation of a new wooden teepee for the kids to use. Again, a big difference in a short space of time.

Fun in the Sun(flowers)

Wed 16 Jun
Report written by Jane Flynn

On Wednesday 16 June, Helen, Alice, Mary, Max and Jane met up in the beautiful Sydney Gardens to help out with some summer gardening tasks. The initial plan was to prepare an area to be seeded for lawn, but with the amazing weather of the last couple of weeks, the ground was too dry and the plan changed: we were tasked with watering a parched area of the gardens.

This gave us our upper body workout for the week, as we needed to fill watering cans at the tap point, then carry them around 200m to the flower bed. Before long, nature decided to help us out and the heavens opened, bringing the plants some much-needed rain and our arms some much-needed rest. For the remainder of the task, we switched focus again to planting wild carrots and admiring the soon-to-be blooming sea of sunflowers.
