Poking in the dirt with a stick

Hi there, when I'm not blogging, job hunting or sitting in Borders drinking cappucinos, I work in Hampstead Heath for Heath Hands. They're a volunteer group who do things like bramble clearance, laying paths, clearing ditchs and that sort of thing.

I do it about three days a week, its immensly satisfying.

This morning we were out at the Heath Extension roughly here. Some people were clearing brambles from around a pond, I was set to clearing an old path that had been blocked by a fallen tree some time in the past.

Heath path - before

I cleared up to the fallen tree myself.

Heath path - after

Aye, its immensly satisfying to be able to see the fruits of your labours.
