It’s a bulb bonanza

Oxford Report written by Anwen Greenaway

Every autumn since 2019 GoodGym Oxford have joined Alistair (the mastermind behind Marston Community Gardeners) planting daffodil bulbs around the streets of Marston. This year we are turning our attention to the Marsh Lane area. It is one of the main routes into Oxford, particularly if you are heading to one of the hospitals, and so it would be great if it had a sweep of daffodils all the way along the route to welcome people into the city.

Thanks to it having been a wetter summer it was a lot easier to get a spade in the ground this year, so we made great progress planting up around the junction with the ring road until the failing light stopped play.

Watch out for the blooms in March!

Congratulations Bethan on reaching 300 good deeds!

Now that it's raining more than ever, Know that we'll still have each other

Oxford Report written by Anwen Greenaway

It never rains but it pours...

In the starkest contrast ever, having considered cancelling our session at St Nicholas's Primary school a fortnight ago due to heat, yesterday we were worrying about whether to go ahead in driving wind and rain. We're made of tough stuff, us GoodGymers, and surely Brits can't cancel due to rain? - We'd never get anything done!

This was our third and final (for now) session taming the school vegetable plot ready for the gardening club to start. This time we'd earmarked the bramble and burdock between the outside beds and the polytunnel to clear, and some extra weeding and tidying inside the polytunnel. 7 of our All Star team weeded out bramble an bind weed and dug over the polytunnel beds, while 2 of the madder GoodGymers braved the rain to tackle the head-height burdock and tangle of bramble outside.

An hour's work had the polytunnel looking spic and span, and the spikey corner outside cleared.

Soggy all through our layers and squelching shoes, we nonetheless enjoyed a run back through Marston post-task. Let's call it character building and a bonding experience?
