Treemendous Eagle-size effort

Wed 1 Sep
Report written by Anji Andrews

Hello September and hello again to Newcastle Eagles community gardens!

It's always a great task with super Task Owner Neil who doubles up as task owner and runner regularly for us! Tonight we were weeding in the huge car park which had already been started by a group of Cadets a few days earlier.

We trialled a new starting point tonight: Central Station.

Pros: easy to find, easy to get to, opposite a Starbucks

Cons: very busy, millions of passing runners, wanted to get a Starbucks before we'd even started.

I took a solo walk to the task tonight on what turned out to be the first autumnal day in what feels like a very long time, and met up with the others who were already about to get stuck in. We had to remove and clear (very prickly) weeds to keep the car park safe and clear. It was another task where the time flew by and contained several thousand very purposeful squats!

Neil, Amy and Paul got stuck into pulling, weeding and clearing while I nominated myself for carrying and dumping the weeds- very satisfying!

Paul had perhaps the toughest job of the night, removing a very deep-rooted and stubborn tree that eventually took both him, Neil and a fork to get it out. I think you can see from the before and after pictures that we made a tree-mendous difference tonight.

Kudos!

Weed don’t need no education (ok, maybe we do!)

Tue 27 Jul
Report written by Charlotte Proud

Myself, Neil, Louise, Dan and Aimee had a really enjoyable community mission helping the Newcastle Eagles.

It was my first official day out of isolation so it was brilliant to see familiar friendly faces and to have a good catch up whilst weeding.

Neil was also the task owner and was explaining that there had been a wedding which explained all the confetti! Apparently the Bride had lost her wedding ring so I thought that was going to be our task (thankfully though it had been found outside)

Our debate all evening between all of us was as to whether it was actually a weed or a plant.

I'm still not quite sure myself but Neil was just happy that we had made the beds look much tidier (see the photos!)

None of us were gardening experts but I liked Louise's opinion that a weed is just a plant growing in the wrong place.

We definitely made good progress but there is still a lot to do, so I'm sure we will be back soon!
