Get Involved

Please come along to our working parties. This garden has been left for a really long time, so is in one heck of a state. There are weeds in there that are very well established, and they need to come out.

At the first working party we are looking to start clearing the site, but also, we need to know where the old paths were, and this will need careful pruning, digging and marking out. It’s not all heavy stuff, there will be plenty to do if you’re not strong. Please come and help.

We need help, and lots of it. Not just the physical stuff, as there are many other aspects of the restoration that we need to work on. Things like:

  • Historical Research
  • Interpretation board design
  • Educational information
  • Propagation
  • Finance
  • Plant/wildlife identification
  • Organising
  • Refreshments at working parties

We will of course need physical help, so if you are keen on:

  • Gardening,
  • Landscaping
  • Jungle clearing,
  • Digging,
  • and generally getting hot and muddy,

then we need you.

If you would like more information on how you can become involved in this tremendous, ambitious and transformational project please let me know
