Come and Plant Eynsham's Carnival Meadow Hedge
Come and celebrate the New Year by creating a wildlife corridor from Eynsham's Carnival Meadow to the Sports Pavilion and beyond…
Bring your spades, or your sorting skills, or simply yours cheers for the planters...
Come on your own, with your families or your community group!
We are planning to restore the hedgerow of Carnival Меadow (in the Playing Fields) by planting the many gaps with ‘whips’. It is a big job with over 500 meters to plant – that’s 50 people if we plant 10m meters each! So, come on down and bring as many fit friends as you can…
If you’re not a dab-hand with a spade (although we will be making slits not holes), there are also jobs to be done sorting the whips of hawthorn, blackthorn, dog rose, dogwood, guelder rose and hazel into an elegant pattern and handing them out to the planters.
For those of you who have been propagating local native trees in your garden, we are planning to add them as in-hedge trees so that you and your descendants can watch them grow. Please bring them with you on the day.
