Last November we planted 1000 daffodil bulbs for a good display in the Spring!
With some of Markfield's trees down in last year's storms, it was all the more important to get bulbs planted.
Get involved & out in the fresh air making a difference to ourselves & to our neighbourhood! - See the Conservation page for more outdoor fun!
Last August, The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) created a new herbal garden outside the Markfield Youth Centre with local volunteers, digging over and preparing the bed. We then worked with children from the centre to plant a variety of herb plants, which the centre and children have agreed to maintain.
Markfield Gardener, Taner Ali, had the idea for the activity and it was done in partnership with Groundwork, who paid for the plants and helped promote it. We have a number of upcoming partnership project days with Groundwork in other parks.
TCV are funded by Haringey Council to run practical conservation projects in parks and green spaces across Haringey, support community groups and run environmental education workshops for children at Railway Fields and to also manage this site, we receive additional funding from the People's Health Trust to run Green Gym sessions that promote the physical and mental health benefits of practical conservation. Contact Michael Bury at TCV if you have any additional questions.
Last October, Markfield suffered storm damage to trees: six trees came down, two needed damaged limbs removed.
The Council surveyed all Haringey parks for storm damage. The Borough had approx 120 trees fall and block public highway. There are probably 100 more in parks and many more in the woodlands and the parkland walk.
