Transition Chichester applied for 420 native species hedging plants from Woodland Trust for a community project to establish a hedge in Oaklands Park, Chichester. The application was successful, and the plants have now arrived, so all we need to do is plant them! The hedge will be planted just south of the Festival Theatre, inside the post and rail fence which separates the large car park from the grassy area below the theatre buildings.
Mary Iden is coordinating the project, and will be on site on the following dates, from 10am onwards. The planting sessions will be morning only – probably finishing around 12 or 1pm.
The later dates will not happen if all the planting has been finished by then.
Please get in touch with the organiser at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to help, saying which session/s you would can attend. She will only organise a session if there are enough people.

Volunteers will be asked to bring their own tools if possible, and to wear sturdy shoes or boots, old clothes and thick gloves. Some of the saplings are prickly!
