Maria from Common Ground community garden put out a call and we answered! A team of volunteers were rallied for a winter tidy with 2 skips to fill.

There were inside jobs, emptying a basement into one of the skips, but it was such a lovely day, we asked to be assigned to an outside job. Celine had recruited a couple of new members from work, so we were a 4 strong team. Big welcome to Alex and Tom !

Our task was to clear a path at the side of the planters, which had long since been overgrown. After what seemed like a very fast 90 minutes, we were done and dusted, all the while other volunteers milling around working on other parts of the site.

We left with thanks from Maria and we encouraged her to make another referral for the January challenge.

We're a community garden where anyone can pick the fresh fruit and vegetables they need. We're expanding into the nearby overgrown areas to increase the variety and amount of food we produce. Come help us beat back the perennial weeds and create a bright new space.
