Windmill Weeding Wednesdays (and other tasks) 17 Mar

Wed 17 Mar 08:00 am
Windmill Hill City Farm, Philip Street, Bedminster , Bristol , BS3 4EA
Helping a local community farm

Are you finding it hard to motivate yourself in the morning? Come and join us for a midweek morning dose of goodness at Windmill Hill City Farm. Early morning, fresh air, walking/running/cycling (or however else you travel), volunteering, animals (and people, if you like them - socially distanced of course) - what a great way to start your day!

Tasks may include, but are not limited to, weeding, sweeping, petting goats (optional), loading and maneuvering wheelbarrows (bring your own gardening gloves if you have them, they are very useful to have for this task and any other tasks)

Hope to see you there :)

Spread joy, not sh*t....but today we can spread both

Wed 24 Feb
Report written by Shreena Parmar

Welcome to Lucy who attended a GoodGym session for the first time - thank you for coming and we hope to see more of you!

Four GoodGymmers carried on digging up the path to prepare it for gravel to be laid and two of us were spreading manure on the paddock. It was nice to be outside and chatting to fellow volunteers whilst doing good in the commuity. Well done everyone.

Another Wednesday morning was well spent at the farm and no one left without a smile. The goats may have had something to do with that. Goat to love them, they are adorable.

Goat-o shoot

Fri 19 Feb
Report written by Melanie Young

The Feel Good Factor was HUGE at Windmill Hill City Farm this morning - a full set of GoodGymmers including Aldi's first ever GoodGym task, returner Anna and back-from Kingston Grace and a whole host of Bristol regulars.

We scraped the path, levelled out the scrapings and we’re then asked if we’d like to join a goat photo shoot, or goat-o shoot for short. Would we ever?!

Shree took charge* of Pip the Pygmy Goat and we were soon** striking a pose for the animal of the week preparation.

With enormous grins on our faces and endorphins from the physical work, we’d made new friends and had the perfect start to the day, all before 9am!

Pip took charge of Shree *Quite a long time later

Having a rake good time

Wed 17 Feb
Report written by Shreena Parmar

Another Wednesday morning at the farm and thankfully about 10 degrees warmer than last week's freezing temperatures. A big welcome to Natashja who attended a GoodGym session for the first time and had some excellent raking skills. We hope to see you again soon Natashja!

Today we were raking piles of soil in one of the paddocks which was rather therapeutic (for me anyway).

Volunteering at the farm has been such a joy during difficult times. The fresh air, the exercise, the chatter, the animals and a whole lot of Goodgym goodness :)

Ice spy with my little eye something beginning with...

Wed 10 Feb
Report written by Shreena Parmar

Another cold winter's morning on the farm with some cheery faces and we were greeted with a lovely sky.

A (not so warm because it was freezing) welcome to Amy who attended a GoodGym session for the first time. Great to have you on board Amy and thanks for your help today!

We continued to dig up the existing path of mud and woodchip to prepare the ground for a new gravel path which will be laid. It was quite a challenge as parts of the path were hard and icy but we soon found a technique and did as much as we could in 45 minutes.

Lovely to see Jason and Jade again who have been attending sessions at the farm every week, great commitment guys!

Look out for the weekday listings at the farm and there may be some weekend listings coming up too.

And G, by the way. For Goats 😊

We dig Wednesday mornings at the farm

Wed 3 Feb
Report written by Shreena Parmar

Five GoodGymmers arrived at the farm on this lovely mild morning including Sarah who attended her first GoodGym session. A very warm (and slightly muddy) welcome Sarah!

There are going to be new gravel paths laid on some of the farm paths so we were preparing the ground by digging and scraping a layer of the existing path. The recent wet weather made it easy to dig out the layer of woodchip and mud and it was very satisfying. Great work everyone!

We really enjoy (dig😉) our mornings at the farm. There's still plenty of tasks on the farm to get involved with, so if you fancy coming along check the listings on the website and there is also a session tomorrow - https://www.goodgym.org/happenings/windmill-woodchip-workout
