The Green Project – get involved!

green project privet hedge plantingThe Green Project encompasses anything which contributes towards making the site as environmentally sustainable as possible.

We have a lot to do!  Our ideas cover

  • Planting – making sure we are keeping the site as green as possible
  • Water management – can we take the water away from the pitches, where we don’t want it in Winter and divert it to areas we do?
  • Nature conservation – looking after the birds and wildlife who share the site with us – hedgehog homes, nesting boxes, insect-friendly plants
  • General gardening – maintaining the rockery area, keeping the weeds down and looking after the varied beds we are creating
  • Composting the garden waste as far as we can
  • Recycling – we need to set up a recycling system
  • Ditch clearing – keeping the ditches clear of waste
  • Water conservation – we need water butts around the site in strategic places
  • Path clearing – keeping the site accessible for all

There is so much to do and everyone is welcome to give us ideas, advice or some help!  Get involved!
