Bishops Interact Club have been working on the patch for about a year now. The group has cleared grass, invasive species and prepared the soil. In the past months they have introduced indigenous plants to the site.
During the work party, there will be a garden maintenance and more planting. While the event is planned for the students, the public is welcome to join. Feel free to sign up and join us for some exciting gardening.
About Gardening activities
During gardening events, we go out to a public greening site and work on general maintenance, cleaning, and upkeep of the plot. These events are key in our activities and they have a huge public impact. By keeping (often formerly abandoned) plots in good shape, the public space often transforms from an eyesore and underused space to an inviting space.
During the gardening events we often work on chores like cutting back or removing grass, cleaning up the space (littering is often an issue), removing weeds, taking care of the plants, and improving the soil. You do not need any gardening experience to join these events. The only thing that really matters is your enthusiasm to participate in public gardening! But if you do have some equipment, always feel free to bring this along. Especially useful are:
- Garbage bags
