Work off your Christmas with some Winter Hedge Planting
January 13th 10am-1pm Eynsham Playing Fields
Bring your spades, or your sorting skills, or simply your cheers for the planters...
Come on your own, with your families or your community group!
We are planning to extend the playing fields hedgerow on the north side and then 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.
