Making Mini Meadows 19th April 11.00-12.30

IMG_1255

Join us on 19th April to help plant mini meadows around Orchard Park, and be part of the national Grow Wild campaign.

You’ll be joining the UK’s biggest ever wild flower campaign, helping to create over one million square metres of colour in summer 2015.

Supported by the Big Lottery Fund and led by Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew; Grow Wild inspires communities, friends, neighbours and individuals across the UK to come together to transform local spaces, by sowing, growing and enjoying native wild flowers.

Sign up for the Grow Wild e-newsletter and social media at growwilduk.com 

Keep an eye on the blog for details of where to meet.

Woodland Trust Trees Planted

Thanks to everyone who helped plant the trees near the busway at Pagram Way. We filled gaps in the hedge in an effort to enhance this habitat and increase the diversity of creatures that can use it. Hilary from the Cambridge Mammal Group informed us of the importance of gapless, dense hedges for invertebrates. A dead wood pile under the hedge was left for invertebrates.
