Update on Fernery Project: Friends of Victoria Park have now raised £4,500 towards the £12,000 needed for plants for our fernery at the Fossil Grove. Our volunteer landscape architect is now ordering the first batch of plants for delivery.
Before we start planting, we need to prepare some of the ground at the Fossil Grove quarry so please bring a shovel and help us on Saturday 23 March from 10am to 2pm. Just arrive and leave when you can – even if you can only spare one hour. We will meet at the Fossil House/pond. If you don’t fancy digging, we will be doing some litter picking and general tidying around the area too.
Experts from the British Pteridological Society will be joining us at the site on Saturday 1st of June to share their expertise so make a note of the date to join us then too.
