Holywell Orchard Restoration, Dursley
During the last year and a half at this site in Cam we have re-made steps, created a huge compost heap at the back of the police station and surveyed for grasses and wild flowers. We have raked the grass away from the meadows on the site and put them in the compost heap. This is really important because we are delighted to be able to report that we found a Common spotted orchid on the site in addition to the one we found in 2011.
This makes all the hard work worthwhile.
Every week we work with volunteers on site - some of them are retired, some are university students, and some are on the road to recovery following drug or alcohol dependence. All have one thing in common - their love of the outdoors, the fresh air and the feeling that they are benefitting local wildlife sites.
