Southern Town Park, 23rd September 2017

Following on from our session here at Southern Town Park a month ago, the main task this time was to uproot the nettles within the wild flower patch that we have created.  Then sow some more yellow rattle seeds.

Elsewhere, we continued our maintenance tasks i.e. cutting back stray tree branches, tidying up and picking litter.

The weather was fine and occasionally sunny, and a turn-out of 15 Green Gymmers ensured that we accomplished our aims for the morning.

We look forward to checking on the wildflower patch in the coming months to see whether our efforts over these past two sessions are rewarded!
