The Multifaith Forest Garden

Saturday 9 November 11.00 – 14.00

Parkwood Springs Forest Garden car park, Shirecliffe Road, S5 8XB

Parkwood Forest Garden is a beautiful calm space and a productive permaculture project. It is a young forest garden developed by Sheffield City Council in association with volunteers. After a summer of incredible growth in the garden we are now continuing the autumn tidy up. As always we will be undertaking general maintenance tasks focusing on existing plants and shrubs.

Thanks to the ongoing work by volunteers from the GoodGym we will be continuing to weed our way around the garden and to apply wood chip. The garden is looking wonderful but thanks to the bumper growing season there is plenty of digging to do so all help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you to everyone who has worked on, and visited the forest garden over the past months. We look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones as we continue to improve the garden.

If you would like to stop for a shared lunch at around 1pm, that would be great. Bring your own food and maybe something to share.

The workday will be hosted by Tim Shortland and Catherine Nuttgens who will be at the entrance of the car park from 10.45am. Contact details below.
