Wivenhoe Wildlife Garden - work progressing well!


Work on the site of what will be the 'Wivenhoe Wildlife Garden' continued with another successful working party during October. We were blessed with glorious weather again, so much so that after we'd finished digging and clearing, some of us went to the Rose & Crown on the waterfront for lunch. Perfect.

Having a coffee break 


Some amazing mushrooms could be seen. Johnny brought his trusty fungus-encyclopaedia and we ID'd the ones we found. I thought these pink fleshy ones were particularly pretty (as I recall, possibly poisonous).

The next working party will be November 11th from 10 - 1.30pm. All Welcome (onlookers as well as gardeners - no skill, fitness, experience or tools required :)

The site is behind the Scout Hut next to the big King George V playing fields - the large green park/fields off the High Street. The Wildlife Garden is supported by Wivenhoe Town Council as part of the 2012 Jubilee Garden. Volunteers have come from the Wivenhoe and surrounding communities (especially Elmstead - thank you Jean and Al!)
