OPWP has been provided with a number of Grow Wild seed kits
Grow Wild wants to engage as many people as possible and has thousands of seed kits available for youth and community groups. In 2015, they’re sending out 120,000. They contain: a getting started guide, five packets of our specially-selected UK native wild flowers, site markers, a DIY bee house and two-for-one entry vouchers for RBG Kew. The RBG Kew vouchers will be awarded to those who plant the most seeds.
Orchard Park’s Habitat Management Plan written for us by the Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, and Northamptonshire, recommends planting mini meadows under trees in Foxglove Way, Aster Way and Sweetpea Way, Engledow Drive so this is what we’ll use our seeds to do. After meeting at the Orchard Community Centre, Centre Drive,CB4 2EZ, we will move around these areas planting up the meadows. It would be great if you can join us, and please bring along a fork or hand spade if you have one. We hope to see you there. If you can’t find us please call 07902 454367, even 30 minutes of your time is valuable to us.
