Upton Nature Garden Update

The initial garden creation phase is complete save for commissioning the
sign.
The meadow is sown and watered. The gates into the garden are
completed and the fire escape path from the small meeting room has
been realigned to improve safety. There have regular maintenance visits

during April and May by the Nature Group members to water the new
plants and shrubs, and a volunteer day where the meadow area was
prepared for seeding and the areas around the new plantings were weeded.
A social celebration event for all the volunteers is being planned.
The five year maintenance plan for the garden is in preparation, drawing
on best practice documents from conservation and horticultural bodies.
The nature group would like to thank the Parish Council for their support
over the past year, and look forward to next.
