Local volunteers, Environment Trust Duke of Edinburgh Award students & local ecologist Alison Fure planting our second orchard, this time in Berrylands Park!
With no such thing a bad weather, only unsuitable clothing, getting a little wet won’t put off dedicated volunteers improving Berrylands Nature Reserve.
Over a year after being dumped in the stream, the Friends group have repaired and reinstalled it, ready to share details about our upcoming activities.
1 month, 6 events, 60+ volunteers, 100+ hours of balsam bashing.
One massive impact!
As quick as Himalayan Balsam keep appearing the volunteers keep pulling it up. Clearing bramble and nettle, and even uncovering a bench!
Lovely recent weather sent the vegetation along the paths a bit wild. Accompanied by butterflies and dragonflies we set out to tackle it
Having got the Himalayan Balsam situation under control in the Nature Reserve we set our sights on helping things at Elmbridge Meadows
The Friends group had ambitious plans for our volunteer session and a fab group of volunteers including helpers from RBK made it a breeze.
On a blazing hot day a group of volunteers set out to see what they could make from pallets, scrap wood, and what they could find in the nature reserve
A great group of volunteers turned up, donning wellies & waders to scour the stream for Himalayan Balsam as part of London Rivers Week
