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.

Grove Park Nature Reserve, situated across the railway from Hither Green Cemetery, contains a good variety of habitats, including the only substantial area of grassland with a calcareous influence in the borough. These habitats support a wide diversity of plants and animals, including a number of locally rare species. The reserve is greatly appreciated by many local people, whether walking their dogs, picking blackberries and plums, or quietly enjoying a peaceful wild space. Local schools make good use of the site for educational visits.
Grove Park nature reseve has a very active ‘Friends’ Group, but they are always looking for more help. The group has been very successful at winning funding to help improve the reserve and this has helped towards their success in winning a Green Pennant for the last two years.
If you have any skills that you think may benefit the reserve and/or you fancy getting involved in any way, please email Jess Kyle or call 020 8314 2119.
