This seasonal task work day – over the summer we’ll be scything and raking as well as collecting wildflower seeds and sowing into scythed areas – is part of our York Becks Project, which includes restoring the wetland meadow at Heworth Holme. Our aim is to make this valuable green space more colourful and attractive for both the local community and wildlife. Heworth Holme is a remnant of old countryside in the town, protected from development by its regular winter flooding and part of a wildlife corridor between St Nicks Nature Reserve and other green spaces along the Tang Hall Beck.
Who is the event suitable for?
Anyone who’d like to have a go at volunteering, meeting new people and enjoying the outdoors while doing something useful as part of One Planet Living. Families and younger people are welcome – there will be a range of tasks for all ages. Please note that under 18s need parental consent and under 13s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
