Volunteer task – Westgate Gardens – building river planters

August 3 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Westgate Parks,
St Peter's Place
Canterbury, CT1 2DB United Kingdom

Last year we installed several “river planters” along the banks where wood revetments are present. These wooden structures fixed to the sides  helped to create planting beds for wetland plants. Currently loosestrife is doing well in these.  By adding more planters and the prospect of more bank vegetation along the " hard edges", we will be improving the overall river habitat as well as improving its visual appeal.
