Buddleia be gone

Cardiff Report written by Michael

It was our last visit to the wonderful folk at 'Forget me Not' to tackle the last part of the buddleia. We had not been able to complete it during our last visit, as it had grown to such new heights in all its glory.

A lovely short run from Big Moose in the City Centre to our second pick up at the Penylan Library for those wanting a shorter distance this week. From there it was a lovely trek through Roath Brook Gardens to the grounds of the Church.

We arrived a little early tonight, so plenty of time to catch up before getting to work. We were greeted by Kathie which was Michael's signal to get the group to work. We were determined to finish the task this week, with an added job of trimming back the overgrown hedges in the back lane.

As the (large) branches were removed the group got to cut them down further to fit in the garden waste bags. Our lights were extremely useful for tonight’s task during the dark nights.

At last, the task was complete, and it was time for a quick photo before heading out for a social.

dig leaf

Cardiff Report written by Michael

Well, Autumn is most certainly here and you could tell as we arrived to Samye for tonight's task. Our tasks were ready on our goodgym board, as usual;

  • Sweep the leaves from the front of the building
  • Move two of the larger plants from the pergola
  • Cut down the veg patch and mint
  • Dig the new uncovered part at the back
  • Remove compost from the bin and dig into the back
  • Remove the tomato plants and put into the compost

Straight to work, as Stuart and Llion put themselves on sweeping duty. Can you dig it? Marie can.

Lydia, Su and Adam removed the plants from the pergola and moved them to the back.

Nathan and Andrew started on the compost, it was a little tough to remove, but with a few bumps and smacks it soon started to fall.

The compost was being moved over to our digger and put into the soil being dug. Soon enough, Andrew joined Marie to help with the digging. The compost was empty and ready to have the tomato plants put in.

The tomato plants were removed from the greenhouse which now housed the plants from the pergola to keep them safe over winter.

The final jobs, as the leaves were bagged up, were added to the compost bin also. A quick bit of pruning and cutting in the veg patch and we were done. Compost bin once again full as nature did it's wonderful job of creating the next growing material.

We all head in for some snacks and water, refueling before our journey back.

Get your rocks off

Cardiff Report written by Michael

A rainy day, but that just means that the ground is softer and easier to dig! Seven goodgymers got together at Stargarallot to help tidy up the community growing space, Four runners and everyone else cycling to the task.

We were welcomed by Camilla and shown the shed of snacks, before a quick briefing on the task tonight. There was a bed that had become overgrown and needed clearing, and three rockery type spaces that would require all of the roks to be removed, dug up and then placed back until it was time to plant in there again.

We split into three groups, one on the main bed and the other two taking a rockery each. We had a good catch up whilst getting the task done, saw the smallest tiny snail, filled a hot bin ready to make some more compost, saved a sage plant and took some wonderful before and after pictures. A bite or two on our legs from the needle nosed busy buzzies, and it was time to make our way back to the city centre.

Goodgym having a BALL (pit)

Cardiff Report written by Michael

A final visit to Cwtch Together before they stop for a while, as the children are back in school in two weeks time. So a final tidy up of the outside space and some help to tidy up the hall after the play.

It certainly had been used today and needed a few extra hand to help out, luckily that's where we come in (quite literally with some members and the ball pit)

Aidan had got to work with the mower and strimmer, making the space all lovely and fresh. Whilst Lydia, Darren and Andrew made light work of the stinging weeds.

Michelle, Adam, Llion and Estelle took to the play area like the BIG children that they are - all fun of fun and frolics.

The time flew by as we all had (maybe) too much fun, but it looked spick and span and energised us ready for our run back. A lovely Tuesday to have one last session outside with our lovely Cwtch group, I'm sure we will find a reason to come back and help again before the year is out.

Join us next week as we make a visit for the second time to St. Dyfrig and St Samson Church in Grangetown
