Land belonging to Worthing Homes at the rear of Cortis Avenue is being turned into a garden for wildlife by volunteers.
The Cortis Avenue Wildlife and Garden Project got off to a flying start on Saturday 16 October with a number of people turning out to get involved. The team included local councillors, residents, volunteers from Worthing Conservation, as well as other local green organisation volunteers.
The team made a great start on clearing the area in preparation for the arrival of a Woodland Trust tree planting pack which they have been awarded, and will be holding big hedge and tree planting weekends where they hope to get as many people involved as possible.
The project will enable residents and other volunteers to learn new skills and socialise whilst managing the space for wildlife. The area will eventually include a pond, wild flower meadow and a vegetable garden.
The team are still looking for more volunteers, as well as donations of garden tools and storage. If this is something you are able to help with in any way, please contact us using the details below.
