Who let the clogs out?

Portsmouth Report written by Julie Blake

Four Goodgymers and 2 local councillors cleaned up the Albert Road "parklet" in a sunny power hour of gardening, sanding, scrubbing, planting, and sweeping!

We pulled up dead plants and replaced them with fresh flowers for summer, picked up litter, wiped the walls, removed stickers from posts, and team superstar Dave worked to sand and scrub graffiti off the sustainable wood that was used to construct the parklet walls.

Shout out to Herbies Health Store for topping up our watering can, and loaning us their shop brush to sweep away the cobwebs so some greenery and iced coffees can be enjoyed on the comfy benches this summer!

This task was also a lovely way to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of JB's first ever GoodGym group run back in June 2014!

More guerilla gardening in the urban jungle.

Portsmouth Report written by Julie Blake

Following on from October's greening event on Percy Road, I have continued to distribute plants, planters and seeds to residents in the PO4 area. Last week, a new couple in the area (recent transPLANTS from Paris, so to speak) were welcomed to the street and gifted with 3 pots of French lavender in one of our painted recycled timber planters from the fall.

I also re-planted a neighbour's flowerbox with a rainbow of mini geraniums (bargain from the B&Q sale rack!) to bring a little more spring cheer to the street.

One of the largest planters we built and painted in October has finally found a home and went to a very grateful resident who said "I don't have a garden at home, so this planter IS my garden."

All sorts of new wildlife is cropping up out back - butterflies, bees, and even baby pigeons so I hope we're doing something right!

The mission to remove wheelie bins continues: a bin stickering campaign was a small start against offenders!

Packets of forget-me-not and poppy seeds are next in line to pretty up the pavements, and mural painting starts tomorrow...watch this space.

Julie Blake done 100 good deeds with GoodGym.

Julie has just reached another level: 100 good deeds with GoodGym. That's at least 100 times when they could have easily done something easier. But they didn't, Julie has kept going and going. Helping a lot of other people and getting a bit fitter at the same time. Congratulations Julie.
