AUGUST: The Multifaith Forest Garden

One of our most popular volunteer events is BACK! You are invited to join us at the Multifaith Forest Garden at Parkwood Springs on: Saturday 10th August 11am – 2pm. The day will be a general maintenance day. In addition, thanks to Sheffield University volunteers we now have a new compost bay that requires the finishing touches and filling. The day will be hosted by Ed Thatcher. Ed’s contact number is: 07816596228

The garden is looking wonderful and there are plenty of currants to pick, so bring your tubs along. It’s a great time of year as the energy of nature is displayed in it’s true splendour, unfortunately this includes some pretty prolific weeds – any help to keep on top of these would be greatly appreciated. The volunteers from the university did a great job clearing meters of oil seed rape and rosebay willowherb. There will also be another chance for a guided walk around the garden for those who haven’t visited before.

We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who has worked on, and visited the forest garden over the past months. We look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones as we move towards another summer in the garden. There are several workdays coming up, so put these dates in your diary!
