In the pink

Mon 15 Aug
Report written by Anastasia Hancock

With a painting job lined up for the evening, it was a case of all eyes on the weather forecast and an afternoon of will it/won't it finally rain?

The aim was to do more of the painting at Paradise Cooperative garden, a space that has been transformed from derelict land to a lush community garden opposite Wandsworth Prison. We had made a great start on the shed last week, but there was still plenty more to be done.

So after a warm up where we also welcomed Emily to her first group run (give her a cheer!) followed by a warm and sticky run down to the garden (and another slight pause to cool off under the nearby gardening centre's sprinkler system) we arrived to find, amongst other things, an unfeasibly tall sunflower and a tin of excellent pink paint.

So, with the rain still holding off, we got cracking with the two sheds. Before long we could really see the difference, and we had very very almost finished the job when it was time to leave - and just as it started to drizzle. Which was probably good news for both the plants and our overheated bodies!

Next week we'll be heading down to Battersea Park to help out in the therapy garden ( just waiting for final confirmation) but don't forget about the weekly Friday lunchtime mission we have helping serve lunch at a local centre for the homeless. Have a very happy week all!
