From the task owner - The link between being outdoors and our mental wellbeing is strong, and vital for children now more than ever. Help us to bring this vital resource back for learning and wellbeing and reignite our local community after these testing times. We need help clearing brambles, overgrown weeds, nettles and grass in the garden areas. Support with clearing the pond of algae and overgrown reeds (waders available in two sizes) and lend your digging skills to help us rejuvenate our tired vegetable patches. Thank you!
Please bring gloves and antibac if possible - Long sleeves and leggings sound like the best option due to the fauna content
We were back helping Jan from the Friends of Turnham Green tonight, clearing and tidying up the rockery on Turnham Green, and planting flowers in the wild flower meadow.
Don’t grow there Andy and I took on the long grass and won, strimming and raking the area beside the meadow.
Let it grow While Lucy, Klara, Emily and Letícia were planting trays of plug plants. It was a barmy night in Chiswick and with many people out walking through the Green there were plenty of people stopping to ask about the meadow and thank us for our efforts.
Been around the rock a few times Meanwhile over at the rockery the mountain of youth as I shall call them from now on; Will, Chris, Remy and Ben were putting their backs into it clearing the rockery of weeds and litter. Alanna and Beth were team logistics ferrying the unwanted weeds over to the other side of the green for collection.
We got plenty done and made the most of the warm temperature 🙌🏻
KERB your Enthusiasm a little as this one is listed subject to how much we get done in Round one on 19th June!
The Scouts may still need us to assist depending on how well we get on in the mission on the 19th ...
If it's a green light for week 2 then the tasks are similar so as follows

Sounds like a workout to me. Please don't wear your best attire here as it sounds a dirty job but reckon you will enjoy.
