We've got it in the Bag

Thu 27 Jan
Report written by Laura Barrett

What we had in the bag was a bit more of a source of debate as there was some confusion about what in the large root pile was meant to being bagged up. Mitch and Amy got bagging (something anyway) with the help of Debs when she arrived. Tay, Louise, Jenna, Ros and Laura carried on digging up roots and they were joined by Sarah half way through. There were some interesting debates about the merits of different insects and whether Daddy Long Legs were venomous. At the end we returned the tools to the carriage shed and Debs was impressed to discover that it was indeed a carriage. What's more it had a lovely big Goodgym G on it (although only one).

Root Cause Analysis

Sun 23 Jan
Report written by Laura Barrett

We went back to Holgate Community Orchard to continue digging out the roots, starting to move down the plot towards the beck. Some of us also start to bag the existing root mountain from our previous efforts. It was good to see our progress in the light again. Egg found a massive root she was determined to excavate and her hole began to resemble an archaeological dig. David joined us for the last half of the task after spotting us on his Sunday run.

Turning Over an Old Leaf

Sun 2 Jan
Report written by Laura Barrett

6 of us helped Holgate Community Garden to sweep and rake the leaves off the basketball court to prevent it being too slippery for local children to use. As a result Nicky, Tay, Louise and Laura completed their third task of the day and Ros and newcomer Paul, their second. Even more impressively Tay and Nicky completed their fifth task of 2022 on the second day! Despite the lovely weather for our first two tasks of the day our luck ran out and we had a soggy hour sweeping and raking leaves which proved quite a workout. By the end the basketball court was clear and we had filled the leaf bins and created a big corner pile.

Getting back to our Roots!

Sun 2 Jan
Report written by Laura Barrett

We enjoyed returning to Holgate allotments in the daylight to see the results of our previous dark tasks to help clear a disused allotment for a community orchard and apiary. It was great to see how much we have already cleared on previous tasks. Our task this morning was to clear the roots from a new section further down the allotment as well as clearing a raised bed of rubble, roots and rugs. It was wonderful to welcome 3 new Goodgymers; Claire, Alastair and Paul. Claire, Alistair, Paul, Ros, Tay and Louise got to work clearing the new section whilst Nicky, Vicky and Laura cleared the raised bed. The hour went quickly and it was good to see how much we'd achieved in it.
