Posted by James Dowdell on December 1, 2016

Bellenden Road Nature Garden

The vision for Bellenden Road Nature Garden is to return it to its former glory- a garden with a range of  habitat types that encourages wildlife and engages the public in local wildlife. I am looking for volunteers interested in helping us on work days to achieve these goals! The first few work days will aim at getting the site back to a good shape;e.g. re-forming some of the original areas in the garden (like the woodland walkway & the minibeast village) and having a general clean-up. These will be held on advertised Tuesdays.  The first volunteer work day will be held Tuesday 22nd October, 1-4pm. We will be meeting at the nature garden at 1pm. Gloves and tools will be provided but please wear suitable outdoor clothing and footwear. Tasks include; Ø  Litter pick Ø  Selective felling of trees encroaching onto grassland Ø  Dead hedging using felled material Ø  Weed the raised beds and plant with seasonal veg Ø  Pull saplings Ø  Weed pathways/install path edging using felled material If you can’t stay for the whole day, don’t worry- come along for as long as you can! Please let me know if you are planning on coming along! [email protected] address lists Highshore School for the purpose of using Google maps. We are located opposite the school, not inside!
