Dentsu Aegis Volunteering Day

Everyone at Brockwell Park Community Greenhouses enjoyed the day we spent with the lovely volunteer group from Carat Uk enormously.  And we are not just saying that!  They were truly a super group - relaxed but motivated too.  We got loads done and all in a splendid spirit.We made loads of beautiful cordials and juices (pictured) in preparation for our giant Ginger Fete.We made a poster for the Ginger Fete and put it up all around Brockwell Park and the neighbourhood. We also made a great notice right outside our site.Employing the same tip-top sign writers, we spruced up existing signs around our site, improving and updating lettering as well as adding pretty illustrations to keep things lively.For more dirty hands on work, a group of chaps did an amazing job leveling around our pond dipping platform in preparation for the extension which will enable us to accommodate larger groups of children investigating the world of aquatic invertebrates!And....lots of marvelous weeding was also done.All in all a varied but highly enjoyable day with pizzas for lunch and beer for afters.  Thank you Carat!  You are always welcome to come back any time.
