Last week 10 volunteers from the Blooming Marvellous Gardening Project came along to help out at Kennels Lane Meadow, in west Southwood. It’s great to work with this supported adult volunteer group, as they aim to empower their volunteers. The group got stuck in clearing back invasive bramble and scrub from this grassland SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest). They did a great job opening up light to the meadow and moving the cuttings.
Suzie, the group leader, commented that “it was lovely to see how Eddie had picked up tree feeling on previous BVCP tasks, and that was now he was teaching other volunteers like Debbie, Jo & Kate.” We’ll be heading back again with another gaggle of volunteers on Tuesday 25th February to remove the stumps and brash piles.
