Hilary Long of WoTSoc has been leading a team of gardeners from both groups in a revamp of the Rose Garden in Canford Park.  They have been working with the Parks Department and Urban Buzz to make the Garden more manageable.  Over the next few weeks it is hoped the work will be finished, although the weather is making things difficult.

Work is ongoing and it will be a while before it is finished but progress is being made.  Here is a presentation from Hayley Herridge about the new pollinator garden.
