Like the Brockwell wildflower slope? We’d love your feedback

We are delighted that the wildflower slope has been receiving so much attention from park users, judging by the hugely positive comments received and glorious pictures posted on various social media.

The project was a happy collaboration between Brockwell Park Community Partners’ (BPCP) Biodiversity Group, Brockwell Lido Users and Friends of Brockwell Park. Special thanks to Susy Hogarth, BPCP Secretary, whose vision inspired this project; and to those that kindly volunteered a Sunday morning in April to sow the seeds.

Finally! The Wildflower Slope is finished

On a lovely sunny Good Friday morning at 11am, we waited to see who would come and help us sow the wildflower seed over the entire length of the newly prepared lido slope.  To our delight 18 people of all ages arrived!  Most were properly attired to get muddy on the slope and everyone  helped with  sowing the seed and then carefully raking afterwards.

All got finished before 12am and so the last stage in a long process was complete.  Thanks to everyone who contributed, both today and over the past 18 months.
