Winter sun for Community Planting at Saracen Way Woodland
An area of amenity woodland and grass verge in Penryn is being enhanced for biodiversity and community benefit, and the community have been keen to get involved with the transformations.
Inspired by the journey between the domestic gardens of the housing area down into the wooded valley, the area around the zig-zag path from Saracen Way was planted with a forest garden design by volunteers working with Cormac and the Making Space for nature team on Thursday 16th December - and who would have thought we would have had the beautiful weather we did!.
The plant list contains many fragrant herbs, berry bushes and blossoming fruit trees that are great for pollinators - a key stone in the natural foodweb - and could easily be grown in people's gardens.
If you would like to get involved in 2022, please contact the project to find out about future volunteer opportunities and events.
