Over coming months we are going to have a number of events to help make Daubeney Road neighbourhood 10 x Greener.
On a number of Saturdays we will be holding Make & Take events. These will be free and open to everyone in the community to come and make things like planters, insect habitats and bird boxes. EcoActive, Daubeney Fields Forever and volunteers will be there to help.
On a number of Sundays, the days after the Make & Take events, we’ll be organising 10 x Greener volunteer groups. We’ll be using this time to make agreed shared and residential spaces greener.
May – Sprint 3 to make Daubeney 10 x Greener
- Saturday 12th – From 11:00-15:00 we’ll be having another Make & Take at the corner of Daubeney and Redwald. This time Daubeney Fields Forever are organising a steel band and there will be a workshop for children to make beautiful green roofed bug hotels. Some volunteers are also firing up some BBQs for hungry helpers, so from 12:00 bring something to cook or share and stay a while chatting with neighbours. We need volunteers to help build and plant 100 wooden planters on both Saturday and Sunday. If you have a battery powered power drill/screw driver please bring it!
- Sunday 13th – Following our efforts on Saturday, on Sunday we’ll be finishing building the wooden planters and distributing them to households on Daubeney Road from 12:00.
We may also do some additional planting, help other residents with jobs or do some litter picking. Let’s see what’s needed on the day.
If you don’t live on Daubeney Road you can get a planter by making a donation of £20+ to the crowdfunding campaign (https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/10xgreener/ – making sure your name is visible on the donation).
