volunteers in hi-vis planting hedge

Extensive hedge planting for the AONB National Grid Project

In the first of 3 sessions, our Canterbury volunteers created three new stretches of hedgerow (120m in total) to benefit wildlife and planted around 1,000 plants! What troopers and what a lovely setting next to Upper Hardres Wood, south of Petham. Thank you guys!

The final session entailed working hard in the heavy rain and high winds and this didn’t dampen the spirits of the nine hardy Canterbury volunteers that stuck it out to plant the final stage of hedging for the AONB National Grid project. And we are very thankful, as a 92m stretch was completed opposite the Lord Whisky animal sanctuary tearooms, Stelling Minnis. One of the team -Tania, won the prize for the muddiest volunteer !
