We will be making movements on Finchley Central Station garden very soon, starting with a clearance day on Sunday 13th January. The action will take place between the hours of 10am and 4pm, although any time you can lend will be greatly appreciated – there is no need to be there for the whole day.
Due to the nature of the activity, it is not recommended to bring along children. Ideally we will decide on the day (or even before) when the next event should be, which will involve lots of planting and be much more family friendly. It would also be great to make some decisions about the kinds of plants we want to put in each area once we have some space cleared.
Tools and tea will be provided, but warm clothes and a snack or packed lunch are recommended if staying for a while.
