Disturbing the Soil Worms

Islington Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

A Return to Caxton House Community Gardens

This week, Area Activator Simon caught up with 9 Goodgymmers from all across town between Archway underground station and Caxton House Community Gardens. Continuing our regular walking groups (runs will return on Monday 13th May!), our team arrived outside the centre and met with Rose and a big crowd of local volunteers, all on hand to help out for an evening of lifting and shifting.

The plan is to make a start on building a lovely new sensory garden- ready for new bulbs and plants to be prepared in June (we will definitely be returning to help out!). First things first, our crew picked up shovels and forks to dig up masses of old soil, and bagging the mud up for other projects. Emre did a smashing job of wheelbarrowing the full bags to the garden entrance gate, ready of pick up. Emily and Sally also helped with weeding the pavements on the main courtyard, and gathering sycamore seeds from the surfaces (these can be invasive and quick growing- best to pick them up ASAP!).

After 45 minutes of digging and jaffa cakes, our crew successfully pulled out an abundance of plastic piping, left behind from previous garden users. A difficult job, very well done! Excellent work everyone.

Together, we walked back toward the underground station, before popping in for refreshments, pizza and Scrabble at The Archway Tavern for our monthly social.

Rufous helped us move BARK BARK BARK chips

Islington Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

On Monday evening, Area Activator Simon met with 6 local Goodgymmers (including first timers Bonnie and Florence- welcome!), and Rufous, a lively 10 year old border terrier at Caledonian Road Underground Station. We were all super excited to enjoy Easter Breaks and good times over the next week- trips abroad were planned, time away from classrooms and visits back home to see family- lovely stuff!

Together we walked to Caledonian Park, and met with the wonderful Gail, (who some of us know from Caledonian Park Junior parkrun) by the Tollacre Café and under the beautiful Victorian clock tower. Our objective for the evening was to shovel up as much bark chip as possible over the course of an hour, and to lay it on the new pathways around the woodlands near Market Road. The volunteer team have been really keen to allow this great North London park to be as accessible as possible for visitors during the Spring and Summer months.

Our crew did a smashing job over the course of the evening, and really contributed to this huge task. Well done everyone!
