Winging it

Oxford Report written by Anwen Greenaway

Third time's the charm at the Bayard's Hill Primary School new vegetable garden.

On previous visits we've weeded the 7 raised beds installed last year, as well as the pile of top soil which will fill those spaces. This time everything just needed a light weeding then we could get the going with topping up the soil in the raised beds. Forming a production line of soil shovellers, bucket carriers and raised bed levellers, we got every raised bed filled with soil and ready for seeds.

A great effort from everyone, particularly on such a warm day.

Thanks to Anna for the wing-themed refreshments ;-)

KEEN as mustard

Oxford Report written by Anwen Greenaway

KEEN are an award-winning youth-led organisation. They create inclusive projects, and support and promote inclusion in Oxfordshire. The KEEN participants are a group of children and young people with a wide range of disabilities - they love gardening and allotment sessions provide benefits to their wellbeing, time outside and the chance to gain new skills and new friends.

The KEEN team are unable to take on the more physically demanding tasks necessary to prepare the allotment for the 2024 growing season, so they called in the GoodGym flash mob to help.

We've never been to the Elder Stubbs allotment site before, so it was lovely to see the Restore and KEEN plots as well as the fun driftwood sculptures. The main task for the evening was to weed the vegetable beds and dig them over a bit ready to receive the seedlings ready to go in the ground which are currently housed at KEEN's base near South Park.

An hour and many mozzie bites later we'd made a significant difference to weed quantities, which will allow KEEN to get participants in to start gardening as soon as possible!

Welcome to GoodGym Sarah, Hei, and Wiktoria!

The rakes progress

Oxford Report written by Anwen Greenaway

With light evenings comes the return of tasks in Oxford's green spaces, and one of our favourites is Aston's Eyot. Tucked between the Iffley Road and the river, the Eyot was a rubbish dump in the 19th Century, but it's now a thriving nature reserve managed by the Friends of Aston's Eyot.

Wednesday's task was nettle removal. Scything and pulling the nettles allows light to get through for wild flowers, and removing them reduces the richness of the soil, which wild flowers prefer. This should all help increase the biodiversity of the area. Scything is always a fan favourite at GoodGym, so there were plenty of volunteers for that task. Henry very competently assembled the new scythe, and Axelle did great work pruning back an elder tree which was getting a little thuggish. Some of the GoodGymers were lucky enough to spot 2 muntjac deer on the way home - it's always surprising and delightful how much nature can thrive yards from busy city streets.

Great work team!

Welcome to GoodGym Emma and Ines.
