Brockwell Park hedge

A group of volunteers planted 177 metres of mixed native hedging in 2004/05 alongside the western boundary, the first part of our Biodiversity Hedge to help enrich wildlife habitat in our park.

 

 

 

Hedge laying 2018The original hedge saplings were laid in 2014 and again in late winter 2017/18 to encourage the hedge to thicken and grow nearer the ground so as to provide protection for wildlife. The weather was somewhat wintry during the last week of February: a case of “extreme” volunteering?

 

 

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!
