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!

Wildflower Slope Update

wildflower slope rotivationThe Wildflower Slope by Brockwell Lido was strimmed today by BPCP volunteers.

It was hard work but our profound thanks to the two farmers and their friends who were able to change the strimmer blade for us! Amazing to find two farmers down for the weekend! And Happy Birthday to their friend.

New notices will be put up with the latest information and the planned programme to keep the Park’s Wildflower Slope looking beautiful for next year.

Brockwell Park Community Partners’ Biodiversity group has been busy planting poppy installations at Norwood Lodge (a community building opposite Brockwell Park Gardens), and Herne Hill main entrance gate and they are looking good. The installations are to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the First World War.
