Eight of us met up in Kennington Park on the hottest day of the year so far for a spot of gardening 👩🌾
After a tour of the park to pick up some litter we headed to some flower beds to do some weeding.
- Alex and Lizzie, both first timers 🥳 were pulling out some grass type plant around the roses.
- Rob (another first timer 🥁), Sarah, Rowan, Jen, Michael and I were pulling out a weed called mouse ear which had taken over a flower bed. We had some chat about and the 5k in Brockwell Park in a few weeks that some of us are running and the return of parkrun hopefully very soon 🤞
After a bit over an hours work in the boiling sun we headed back to the rose garden with the tools and weeds.
This lovely little community garden who educate locals on growing veg and provide a space to do it would like a bunch of us to give them a hand with a couple of tasks:
🍂Turning the compost pile - Dirty but satisfying work!
✂️Cutting back some bushes
Please bring gardening gloves! 🧤
We will meet at the Community Garden, which is near the Denmark Hill Station entrance to the park - here.
The award-winning Friends Of Kennington Park (partly thanks to the work of GoodGym 😏) have asked for some GG muscle to help out at their monthly gardening session.
Tasks will likely include:
🥀 Deadheading and pruning
🗑 Litter picking
🌱Pulling up bindweed!
What a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon!! ☀️
Please bring gardening gloves 🧤🧤and meet at the garden here.
NB: there may not be anyone from taskforce to lead, but the Kennington Park team are super lovely and will tell you what to do :)
