Big Dig in Finsbury Park

Big Dig is coming to London on the 21st of April and this time ELL is taking part. Whoop whoop! We will be digging loads of woodchip and putting it on our lovely new paths, along with cardboard underneath. In addition, we'll be planting a few new trees along the side of Seven Sisters Road. Will be great exercise and good fun. And cake. 30 gardens have already signed up. You can see them all on this map http://www.bigdig.org.uk/london/

Due to popular demand, we are now opening our gates on at least one Saturday a month. A chance to gain some informal training in forest gardening and the design process, whist rolling up your sleeves to get stuck into whatever needs doing!

We will be located at DIFFERENT SITES around the park - often planting trees and shrubs, working at Manor House Lodge, or at the nursery site. Please call 07733 330379  /  07804 596645 to find out where to meet.

Come and find out about the project over a cup of tea and meet others. Look forward to see you there.
