Gipsy Hill Station – Join us for some autumnal gardening!

Save the date, next action day Saturday 15th December!!!


Update: The cats were back on 17th November!  This time Fanny was joined by C.A.T (Cable Avoidance Tool), that was kindly provided by our super local and amazing Focus Plant Hire (on Gipsy Hill), and a strimmer provided by the also amazing Library of Things (from Upper Norwood Liburary).   Great work preparing the soil, and tidying up.. and another 20+ bags cleared away!

We are now ready for bulb planting!


And… look was found… we may need some help from a local brewery to discover what this really tasted like!

… and… Wow!.. What a great morning’s work by volunteers… and project management by Fanny…
