Wildflower Planting at Bournville Park

2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Bournville Park

Come and join the Friends of Bournville Park for wild flower plug planting kindly donated by Buglife.

Nick Packham, Buglife’s Urban Buzz Officer, will lead the planting session and is keen work with the group to improve the habitats for insects in the park!

For the kids, Dean Paul, from Birmingham City Council’s Ranger Service, will be leading a bug-hunting and water-dipping/testing session in the Bourn. We all know that the stream makes Bournville Park special: this is a chance for kids and parents to learn more about the Bourn, the quality of the water that flows through it, and the species for which it provides a home.

There will be tea, coffee and cake at the end of the session in the Bournville Hub on Bournville Green. (The Hub asks for a small donation for the refreshments; 50p for hot drinks, £1 for cake).

What to wear & info for parents and guardians
All tools needed for the planting session will be provided. Please wear warm clothes, gardening gloves and shoes suitable for gardening/outdoor work. All welcome but please note children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.
