Register my interest

Location: Figge’s Marsh (park in MITCHAM), Near Gorringe Park Avenue, Mitcham , CR4 (see map)

Travel: Tooting station. Gorringe Park Avenue bus stop.

Start date: 12/10/2019 (ongoing)

Age: 5++

What will I be doing?

  • We’ll be planting five flower and shrub beds in the northern section of Figge’s Marsh
  • Digging, planting, watering and mulching will be required throughout the day
  • Volunteers don’t have to do all of the above tasks - for example if someone only wanted to do watering, that would be lovely

What impact will this have?

  • Figge’s Marsh lacks permanent flower and shrub beds so this will add an area of beauty to the park
  • The flowering shrubs and flowers and herbs will attract pollinators and improve biodiversity in the park
  • The lavender and Mitcham peppermint we’ll be planting has historical significance as it was planted all over the area of Mitcham many decades ago.
