Nature's Gym location change on 15th March 2012

Posted by Lewisham Gardens on March 5, 2012 at 8:45 AM Comments comments (0)
A re-post from Nature Conservation Lewisham- the Lewisham Gardens calendar has been updated.

It appears as though that the knowledge of the greatness of the Nature’s Gym services is being spread far and wide and we have had a special request to go to a site in Grove Park. When the programme was developed last year 15th March was always TBC because we were unsure that there would be enough work there. It appears there isn’t, so our talents are going to be utilised elsewhere!

Therefore on 15th March we will now be at Grove Park nature reserve and not Dacres Wood. See below for a map of the location.

A number of you will have been here before when we planted the orchard, or even further back when we planted up the new pond.
