Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

Area Activator Simon was joined by two Goodgym legends (John and Patrick) for a quirky gardening project outside a care home off Mildmay Grove. Our challenge was to clear a full planter full of bushes, plants and all trees, to allow the space to be re-purposed as a vegetable plot for the residents.

Simon got the ball rolling at 10am, and clipped away at a lot of the bushes, and made some headway with pulling weeds and unnecessary plants from the bay. John and Patrick then took over, while also pruning the bushes that surrounded a hidden bench, allowing the seat to be used again! Simon then moved about 18 bags of compost from the car park drop off point, and over to the growing bay, using a tea trolley to help with the transit!

Our toughest task involved shifting some very stubborn roots from the planter, heavily bedded in the soil. The three of us teased them out, using spades, forks and clippers to loosen their grip. Eventually, we felt a significant shift in movement, and we ripped a monster stump from the ground! Super satisfying work!

Last job was to then lay out the new compost in the planter, spreading it evenly to allow the residents to start growing new plants and vegetables immediately.

Wonderful work everyone! Cracking job!
