GoodGymers muck in to move a mountain of manure

Bath Report written by Ruth

We at GoodGym Bath are well aware of the nurturing power of gardening and the outdoors and we certainly put in lots of practice.

One of my favourite missions is at the walled garden at Newton St Loe, which is being restored by the Grow for Life charity. It provides social and therapeutic gardening sessions for people coping with anxiety, depression or isolation. The site will eventually become a haven - as well as providing freshly-grown vegetables, flowers and herbs.

It was a treat to return to the spot and see it radically transformed from my last visit. What had been rows of lettuces of all varieties and other plants had been dug out and replaced by curvacious borders.

Grow for Life's Wayne McMaster, explained that the gardeners really wanted a place they could sit and relax and take in the atmosphere. They pointed out that regimented lines of crops do not make a relaxing environment and so the curvy flower beds were born.

And that's where GoodGym came in. Those beds need a serious amount of mulch if they are going to do their job and raise plants, veg and floral abundance.

Wayne had taken delivery of a huge lorryload of manure and our main task was to add it to the beds marked out across the site. Tanya was given the job of rescuing a host of tiny nasturtiums growing in the plots and then the team reached for rakes, spades and wheelbarrows and - with moral support from Ted the dog - did its best to move the mountain of manure.

Special thanks go to Jason - who came from GoodGym Bristol to lend a hand - and a big welcome to Jenny and Kam, making their GoodGym debut. You wouldn't realise it from the way they "dug" in.

We were also given an idea of how the garden will look when it's finished. Wayne is planning a wide variety of trees to provide fruit, shade and a windbreak for the Grow for Lifers. It was great to write the labels and perhaps we'll be back to help plant them.

We didn't quite move the mountain but we made an impressive dent in the dung. Well done Jane, Emily and the rest of the gang.
