Help needed at ‘Mulching Bonanzas’!

In February 2014 The Nature Conservation Rangers, in partnership with Trees for Cities, undertook a project to plant 7,500 new trees atBroadmead Recreation Ground. With the help of hundreds of volunteers all of the trees were successfully planted! However, this was the easy part…

The next step is to spread wood chip (also known as mulch) around the base of all these trees in order to stop weeds growing – a mammoth task indeed! We are looking for volunteers to help us on these workdays – and it really is a case of ‘the more the merrier!’ We already have some ‘Mulching Bonanza’ dates scheduled for Summer:

  • Tuesday 6 May
  • Thursday 3 July
  • Thursday 17 July
  • Thursday 7 August 
  • more dates to be confirmed

We provide all of the tools, tea and coffee, and of course lots and lots of biscuits! The events last from 10am to 2.30pm and we will meet at Broadmead Recreation Ground, the entrance on the corner of Navestock Crescent and Broadmead Road. The site is near Woodford Underground Station and free parking is available in the area.

We would also be interested in hearing from corporate groups who would like to give time to this good cause – so please spread the word!
