Sunflower bomb New Cross

We're calling it. We've had 12 solid months of the worst weather BC can remember. It is time for a change in fortunes. A glorious late spring and a scorching summer are going to happen. In preparation, New Cross sun worshipers are planning to sunflower-bomb New Cross High Street. Sarah from Grow Wild writes:

One thousand sunflowers and nectar rich flowers coming to your New Cross High Street and other unusual localities this summer! 

Help us create much needed forage sites for local bees by lending a hand at a planting day, growing some sunflowers at home, or assisting with site care or watering. Helping hands needed this Saturday 20th April from 1-3:30pm to prepare the ground for planting our sunflowers. 

Pick up a fork and join the crew on the corner of St James and New Cross Roads (Next to the Cowbins) 

All tools and equipment provided. See you there! There will also be a variety of related events throughout the summer so keep an eye out for activities happening soon!
