We used to be called the Tree Group but found this restricted our activity to the winter months. So, in 2011 we realised we wanted to do more about increasing wildlife habitat and corridors and decided to call ourselves the biodioversity group, as it better reflects our purpose.
We now focus on something different each year, while continuing to plant trees and hedges as well as manage those already planted. Suggestions for worthwhile projects are always welcome, so please get in touch with us if you have any ideas.
All of our sessions are very sociable with lots of refreshments including delicious cakes! Tools are provided; we simply ask people to turn up, suitably clothed and shod and work as hard as you are able. While we welcome children most of the time, unfortunately the activities are not always suitable because of the tools and equipment we are using.
This is a great opportunity for keen growers or people getting started on the growing habit.
Seedy Sunday takes place on the last Sunday of February in a hall in the centre of town, normally from 11.00 a.m. to 1.00.
You can save your seeds, veg. or flowers, at the end of the growing season, pop them into a marked envelope and bring them along to swap for some others. Or, you may have seeds left over in a packet that you can bring along.
There's usually a stall where you can buy small packets of seeds and local producers or growers selling their products. Refreshments are available.
