Planting to Enhance Easebourne Park

The first planting session which took place on the first 3 days of October was very successful.  Adult volunteers from the Allotment and Garden Society, the local community, children from Conifers and Easebourne C.E. Primary School, the Rainbows and Brownies planted 1,000 bluebell bulbs and hundreds of wild flower plugs and seeds.  Over 90 children helped in this planting session and we were so grateful for their help.
 
The next opportunity to get involved is week beginning 12th November when we will be planting hundreds of heathers, hedgerow saplings and trees.

You don’t need to be green fingered to help us with the next phase of the Park, which is due to begin early next month.  You can choose to help for a few hours in the morning or afternoon, for the whole day or even more days if you are free!

Session 2: Week beginning 12th November 2018  (Monday 12th, Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th)

This session will require more heavy digging:

  • A mass of heather planting along the bank
  • Tree and hedge planting

Please bring a trowel and a spade and wear some sturdy shoes/boots, and gardening gloves if you have them.

Instruction and a safety briefing will be given prior the planting session by Lawrence of Wildwood.

If you are keen to help us with this next phase of Easebourne Park, please ‘sign up’ as soon as possible by emailing Sharon the Parish Clerk, on parishclerk@easebourne.org

We need you!
