Garden Jobs for July - Inside and Outside your Polytunnels

 Last month, we sponsored one of our constructors Kevin Robinson along with two friends David Pye and Brian Clarke, embarked on a 27 day adventure. Setting off in a Red Vauxhall Corsa that would visit 13 countries covering over 8,000 miles all to raise money for charity.

The outcome of the adventure (apart from some fun) is the guys raised money for charities Blue Marine Foundation and Cool Earth

At this time of teh year, crops should be watered on a regular basis

The Blue Marine Foundation

BLUE is a UK registered charity set up in 2010 by some of the team behind the award-winning documentary film The End of the Line.

"We all need healthy oceans. They are the life-blood of the planet. However the oceans are under serious threat from irresponsible human activity. The crisis in our oceans is the largest solvable problem on the planet. Effectively managed multi-use marine reserves provide the solution."

July is a great month to begin harvesting your fruit and vegetables.

So where did they go?

The team visited 13 countries spanning over 8,000 miles of desert, rough terrain and mountains. The guys took a corsa from London to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia in order that it can be auctioned off by 'AFDM'. Vehicles brought into Mongolia with AFDM are sold. The money raised is distributed to carefully selected charity projects in Mongolia.On the way they had some near escapes one involving the local police! 
The rally is organised by the adventurists.com. "The Adventurists is run by The League of Adventurists International Ltd, a UK based company not just hell bent on fighting to make the world less boring but also raising massive buckets of cash for charities. We figure since we are rather fond of adventuring in the world we should do our bit to look after it." why not visit them and find your adventure.
 
Keep checking your plants to make sure no nasty pets are devouring your crops.

Cool Earth

The chosen charity this year was Cool Earth. " The simple idea behind Cool Earth is that rainforests are worth much more to the human race left standing, helping to cool the planet, than they are cut down for timber or burnt to clear land for cattle ranching. Cool Earth works with local rainforest communities to protect rainforest from being cut down."
