Come and celebrate winter by creating a wildlife corridor from Eynsham's Playing Field and the Neyotts Meadow that runs down to Eynsham Lock
Bring your spades, or your sorting skills, or simply yours cheers for the planters...
Come on your own, with your families or your community group!
We are planning to extent the playing fields hedgerow on the north side and the to extend this wildlife corridor by planting a hedge in the Neyotts the meadow that runs down to Eynsham Lock. It is a big job with over 200 meters to plant – that’s 40 people if we plant 5m meters each! So, come on down and bring as many fit friends as you can…
If you’re not a dab-hand with a spade (although we will be making slits not holes), there are also jobs to be done sorting the whips of hawthorn, blackthorn, dog rose, dogwood, guelder rose and hazel into an elegant pattern and handing them out to the planters.
For those of you who have been propagating local native trees in your garden, we are planning to add them as in-hedge trees so that you and your descendants can watch them grow. Please bring them with you on the day.
Please bring spades and secateurs and cardboard for mulching if you have them. If you don't, we have lots. And please try and get there for 10am if you can. It makes briefing everyone easier. Also, the national board of Campaign for the Protection of Rural England, who have funded the hedgerow plants are coming to see how we do it!
