This is addressed mainly to those who have already volunteered for this task, which takes place at the drainage lagoon beside Outwood Lane.
We are installing British native pond plants around the edge of the shallow end of the lagoon (see pic). These marginal plants are growing in coir matting which will be transported to the site.
Depending on time and the numbers of volunteers, we will also be removing some invasive plants from the area surrounding the lagoon, in preparation for wildflower seeding in May. Please bring some garden forks or other digging tools to help with this task.
We are a self-funded group of volunteers looking after our local countryside in Banstead Wood and Chipstead Valley. We extend a warm welcome to those who would like to help maintain this important green space for the benefit of everyone. Here you will find details of WoodChips weekly tasks and activities. Check back soon to see what we're up to!
