Rackleaze Wetland, Cam

Since the last article in the newsletter Stroud Valleys Project and its regular Thursday volunteer group have been busy with habitat management work including the start of the annual comfrey ‘bash’ (cutting back) which was scythed (less messy than a brush-cutter), and the management of the newly planted hedgerow. This has suffered over the hot summer months and a number of plants have actually died which we will replace this coming autumn.

The volunteer group has also completely rebuilt the footbridge that crosses the ditch on site, a job which was achieved over two sessions to take down and build (see photos). We also hope to start giving the old boardwalk a wire brushing and wood preserve if weather will allow us!

 Building Sensory Gardens with local communitiesSensory 1

Our work at the Sensory Garden space at Stratford Park has continued at a steady pace with the group now only a few sessions away from completing the magnificent wooden seating in the amphitheatre area.

This piece of the sensory garden project has really tested all of us from the initial pencil drawings put together at the beginning of January 2020 with the first supporting posts of the seating installed in February before the first lockdown.

But since returning to work, the group has enjoyed and endured sun and rain to see the finishing line and complete the main seating area. 

Along with general maintenance of the garden area flower-beds and borders we hope to start on the final phase of seating that will top the amphitheatre. We intend to build five low level long seats made from Cedar of Lebanon and oak - timber felled or windblown from the park.

The project’s work at our outdoor base at the Beeches Day Care Centre, has continued with volunteers coming in on two shifts, with groups no bigger than six participants. The work, good humour and well-being that everyone on the Tuesday group is encouraged to Sensory 2be involved in really gets to the heart of what our work is all about.

The teams have been involved in several new projects on-site with a new design and build of Little Owl boxes, building a large raised bed to be used as a nursery and temporary home for hedgerow species, propagating Devil’s-bit scabious (thanks Sara G) for a Butterfly Conservation Trust project in the Stroud District and up-cycling garden tools donated to us via the eco shop.
