BXAG: Mulch for Brockley

It seems like mulching season starts earlier and earlier each year. Rupert of The Brockley Cross Action Group reports:

SUNDAY 28th NOVEMBER, 12.00 - 4.00pm: FINAL WEEDING & MULCHING OF THE BEDS, TO THEM TO BED FOR THE WINTER.

Network Rail, who are being very supportive of our work, have generously agreed to provide 20m3 of woodchip mulch free of charge so that we can do a final mulching of the beds for the year. This will help protect the herbaceous plants, enrich the soil and help keep the dreaded weeds down next year! But we will need a good turnout to get all this stuff shifted!

BXAG have 2 barrows but if anyone else can bring a barrow let me know! We will also do a good clear out and weeding of our much loved but neglected original community planting bed down by the platform. We have ignored this well established bed for most of the summer, as we have had to focus all our efforts on the new planting.

We need to put that right! As ever tools, gloves and free refreshments will of course be provided - when we're done we can pile into the Broca at 4.00 or earlier for warmth and coffee at 4.00. I believe it might be a classic winter's day on Sunday! (yes that is a euphemism for a cold day!).
