Since the committee was elected in November we have been asking members what they would like to see at Dorset Road Allotments. A common request was for more working parties and community activities. As a result we have created the Dorset Road Allotment’s Community Spruce programme for 2019. This will give members an opportunity to come together to volunteer to help improve the site, to learn and to celebrate.
The first event is on Saturday 23rd February between 11am and 1pm. We will be planting new wildlife and forager-friendly hedging along the perimeter of the site continuing work that has been underway for some time now. Not only does native hedging provide a habitat for wildlife, it makes the site look better and importantly improves security.
As well as planting hedging there will be an opportunity to make wildflower seed bombs to try and bring diversity to the wildlife garden. The 19th Bromley Scout Group have already made seed bombs for us and some of the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts will be on site to launch them into the wildlife garden.
We hope you can join us to help improve the site and meet some of your fellow allotmenteers.
Refreshments will be provided.
