Seed planting at Mabley Green Community Meadow

With winter on the way, it’s time to give the Mabley Green Community Meadow a little helping hand. On Saturday November, 6 from 11am-4pm local people are invited to grab their digging tools and get planting.

The meadow, which came third in The London in Bloom Community Garden Awards transformed an underused space. Following on from last years success, Mabley Green Users Group will be planting bulbs and wildflower seeds to flower next Spring. Other tasks for the day include putting the fences back up and giving the area a good spruce up.

Hackney Council s Cabinet Member for Community Services, Councillor Jonathan McShane said: “This is a fantastic example of what a local community can achieve. I’m delighted that the Council supports projects like this as they bring people together and help promote biodiversity. Come along, grab your spade and get planting.”

Mabley Green Community Meadow is one of the many projects that supports the Council’s aims of increasing biodiversity and enables close working with the local community to improve green spaces.

Anyone, young and old can come along. Just wear sturdy shoes and bring digging tools, gardening gloves and some food for a picnic lunch.
