Work Group schedule for autumn 2023. All welcome
Every other Tuesday morning outside the summer we meet at 10.00am at different locations around Crofton and Sparrow Woods for two and a quarter hours.
We are a mixed ability (and age) Group - there are tree choppers and light-task workers, but between us we work to help maintain the Council-owned areas of the woodland.
For example, we coppice hazel etc to open up areas to light to the benefit of ground flora and insects. We clear areas around oaks to ensure that their roots get the nutrients to thrive. We try and re-open St Thomas Open Space so that it is more open again.
All this is done in partnership with idverde, Bromley Council's contractor, as the area is a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
Many of us are working or have other committements, so we are used to people not coming every fortnight, and having to leave early.
Fancy joining us and seeing if is for you? Well, the plans for the next few sessions are on this site for the first time.
Come suitably dressed - and for mud if it has been wet.
