GET INVOLVED

 

We have a schedule of events for the year ahead. Join us on one of our practical days which offer the chance to learn new skills and get your hands dirty doing conservation tasks.

MAINTAINING THE BEES

 

A specialist team of trained members look after our bees

 

 


3RIVERS CLEAN UP

 

Every year we spend a day on Thames 21’s annual three week campaign to improve South East London’s rivers which includes the Ravensbourne, Pool and Quaggy. Tributaries that flow into the Ravensbourne run through the park

 

 


LITTER PICKING

 

A major task within the park is clearing general litter and other fly-tipped rubbish particularly from the park boundaries around Albert Road, Harrington Road and Westgate Road

 

 


SOWING WILDFLOWER SEEDS

 

We have sown wildflower seeds which were donated from the Grow Wild scheme, to produce flowers which will be attractive to the bees

 

 


PRUNING & CLEARING

 

Pruning fruit trees in the environmental garden. Clearing brambles in the compound and near Harrington Road tram stop

 

 


 

CLEARING SCRUB

 

We were given 200 free trees through TCV working with Ovo Energy. We cleared the scrub as preparation before planting the young trees

 

 

While we work hard to secure funding for big projects we rely on donations to fund our running costs.
Any donations you can offer would be greatly appreciated and help us do more for you.
