No Stone Left Unturned
Whilst the ball moves ever closer the garden team continue to tidy the college garden. Ady and Graham spent the morning working on the path leading into the Provost's Garden, an access point to the dining marquee.
Joss works on the banks carefully cutting away the turf to define the top edge, using just a small knife, he painstakingly removes an inch of turf all along the back.
In the afternoon, Ady and Graham join Simon, Kieron and Ali on the Broadwalk who are weeding and raking this path that runs from the Nuffield Lawn to the sports field along the lake edge.
Oxford, The gardens are usually open afternoons 2-5pm (Winter 2-4pm)
