Volunteering day with The Friends of Eastwood Farm

Verco’s Overmoor team contributed to increasing the meadow diversity of over 65 acres of land.

We removed turf to make space for the wild flower plugs to be planted which we hope to see grow over the coming months.

The Friends of Eastwood farm is a charity which closely looks after Eastwood farm nature reserve; a little known wildlife haven by the side of the River Avon, Brislington in Bristol. This reserve was previously a landfill site.

The Overmoor office planted wild flowers, to increase the meadow diversity. This was a very rewarding day, but hard work. Whilst the rain threatened, we all ‘dug in’ and are proud to have added to the already beautiful setting.

The meadow has been on such an amazing journey to become a wildlife haven, now improving further each year with the help of the community.

The chair of the Friends of Eastwood farm:

“On behalf of The Friends Eastwood Farm I would like to say thank you to you and Verco for supporting our work. I would like to pass on our gratitude to the team who planted plug plants on the field. Hopefully you will be able to return next spring and see them all flowering”.
