Cortis Avenue Wildlife Garden Now Open

Posted on 25 June 2021

Good news! Cortis Avenue Wildlife Garden is re-opening to visitors from Friday 2nd July. Our opening times will be:
Wednesdays 11am – 12 noon
Fridays 11am – 12 noon
Alternate Saturdays – 17th July, 31st July, 14th August, 28th August & 25th September

We do have a few Covid related rules, to help keep everyone safe.
A one – way route round the garden
Signing-in at the gate
Social distancing and request to stay in your group
Maximum of 15 visitors at any one time (in addition to our volunteers).
Specific events are ‘on hold’ until we see how things go forward.
Our volunteers have been busy over the past 15 months maintaining the garden – volunteer numbers at any session subject to Covid rules.

The meadow and raised beds are blooming with wild flowers, the pond is looking good, and our hedgerows are flourishing. We had two bee swarms from ‘stranger’ bees, which we have rehomed. Unfortunately, our bees lost their Queen during her mating flight, and we now have a new Queen who has some catching up to do. But we have plenty of butterflies out and about when the sun shines!

So why not come along and check us out – we’d love to see you – just not all at once!

SICK OF THE COST OF LIVING CRISIS? SICK ABOUT THE CLIMATE CRISIS? THEY ARE ONE CRISIS.

Today we are on the streets in London, prayerfully blocking the road outside parliament. We are taking a stand against a government who seems set on making life easier for millionaires & making the rest of us suffer.

If we don't act - who will?

Timeline photosThe 11th Assembly of The @worldcouncilofchurches in Karlsruhe, #Germany has called for support for #ecocidelaw as a new and strengthened form of ecological accountability.

The World Council of Churches is the world’s largest ecumenical organisation and the Assembly is held every eight years. The statement calls for metanoia; a transformative change of heart and mind. It determines that the narrow anthropocentric understanding of our relationship with Creation must be revised to a whole of life understanding.

We really never know quite what were going to have to repair but our wonderful volunteers are always ready to rise to the challenge each month and do an incredible job, bearing in mind mostly they only have an hour for each repair (and we were really busy)! Theres also drinks and cake available while you wait.

Taking bookings now for the next one on Saturday October 29th.

I'm sure it's staring me in the face, but how do I book please? 🤔

Don't forget to mention how good the coffee and cakes are 😋 ☕

Due to some pretty fierce winds in the past week, the runner beans have taken a bit of a hammering so enter the rescue team!

Theyre still producing loads though...
