Recent developments May 2011
There has been a terrific transformation in the nature reserve over the last 4 months. Volunteers from Trust for Urban Ecology have been hard at work, creating a bog garden where the pond was, creating a new pond where there will be more sunlight, turfing a complete meadow and planting lots of trees, shrubs and native wildflower plants. We are delighted with the changes and particularly grateful to Deutsche Bank who have not only provided groups of corporate volunteers but have also been generous in donating money to the reserve for further improvements. We are waiting for news of possible monies from Awards for All which if our bid is successful will allow us to run community volunteering events, training courses on wildlife gardening, meadow managements and fungus identification during the summer and autumn. More on this in future posts.
