A little Saturday outing …

This morning the two John’s (thanks guys) & myself picked up a large quantity of decorative rocks kindly donated by a resident … these have been placed in circles around the palm trees on the roundabout near to the golf driving range and on the gravelled area nearbyimage

Along the way we also picked up a large ceramic pot from another resident and a bucket donation from another for removing a large tree stump

Many thanks for supporting Green Fingers

Wednesday found 10 volunteers out – John, John2, Badr, Cath, Graham, Paddy, Paul, Wendy, Ken and myself … we worked on:

Small self-seeded palms were dug up and replanted – saving a few €!

Plants were watered, bushes trimmed and everyone’s favourite task weeding

We also planted a number of plants donated by residents
