Community Gardening - Sunday 24th February

A date for your diary as we carry out our first community gardening event of the year on SUNDAY 24th FEBRUARY (12 noon - 4pm) in conjunction with the Brockley Cross Action Group (BXAG).
The BXAG will be holding a general tidy up session from midday - 4pm. Details from BXAG Chair, Rupert below:
This is our annual spring clean so a good attendance will be essential! We will be doing the usual litter picking, weeding & pruning and will do our once a year clear out of all the rubbish in the wildlife area. I think we also need to do two other things: (i) bag up all the excess green waste at the back of the site for the Council to collect and (ii) take down some of the temporary fencing which is now well and truly rotting, as you can see down at street level.
Besides this we would suggest that we spend from midday - 2pm concentrating on our plot and also the areas around the base of the Brockley Rd trees planted last year to get it into shape. Depending on the weather we may also put in some new plants if we have them but would encourage anyone who has any cuttings to bring them along too.
As ever please remember to wear suitable clothing, shoes and bring some gloves.
If you can't make it the whole session that's not a problem, just come for whatever time you can. With the BXAG beds having now had a good couple of years to take root this could be the best year yet for the areas around the station so if you want to part of this just turn up!
