The Sensory Garden is open and in use by park visitors. The changing seasons will be reflected by the type of plants growing, in flower or seeding. Friends volunteers are continuing to maintain the garden and plant new plants when necessary and suitable. Regretably someone occasionally steals plants which volunteers have planted for the enjoyment of all park users.
If you want to join the volunteers just turn up on the dates and times above or contact us for more details. Even if you don't know anything about gardening this is a good place to start with the help of other volunteers.
Other conservation work is done during winter months when plants and animals are mostly dormant. Only light work is carried out, no tree felling and we usually only work for a couple of hours. Gloves, tools and instruction provided. The work we do is light pruning / coppicing. Rhododendron control, Holly control, bramble control, Litter Picks. It's surprising how much work a few people can do in a short time.
