Volunteers required to rotivate the wildflower slope

133Volunteers are required to rotivate the wildflower slope by Brockwell Lido in preparation for Spring, on Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th February at 10.30am.

This year we left the plants to self-seed but at the end of the rotivating we will be adding additional seed that was gathered in September 2014.

If you have any free time on either day – please come and join us.  Even if you can give two hours, it makes a difference.  There are lots of jobs to be done – raking, weed and stubble clearance and a bit of digging and disposing of stones, bricks and general rubbish.

Please wear good strong boots/shoes  and a warm jacket. Hoping to see you there!
