Woodland Action Day – creation of mulch storage area
Jul 31st 2016 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Our continuing priority is to focus on the trees that have already been planted in previous years, as they need assistance to survive. This includes mulching them with woodchip from our stockpile. There are over 5,000 young trees in the woods, so plenty of helping hands are needed!
This month we will be creating a new structure for our mulch stockpile, using wooden pallets and weed supressant matting. We will clear an area for this and also relocate the old mulch pile to its new location.
This work represents the first significant part of our improvement works undertaken with the help of Tesco’s Bags of Help scheme. There is plenty to do, so enthusiastic helpers are most welcome!
We meet 10am at the Dane Valley Woods HQ in Dane Valley allotments at the end of St Peters Footpath, or you can find us on the right hand side of the cycle path leading up into the woods from the Dane Valley Road / Kent Road mini-roundabout – we are easy to spot in our hi-viz yellow jackets!
There is no need to book – we provide all tools and safety equipment, but please wear a sturdy pair of shoes and come dressed for the weather.
All ages welcome, under 16s to be accompanied by an adult. Hot drink refreshments are provided at the end of the morning for all hard working volunteers.
