Monday 19th July, 7.00pm – Outdoor Urban Walk along the Porter Valley
An urban walk led by Mark James, part of mapping the boundary of the NESST. Meet outside The Stag’s Head pub on Psalter Lane, 7pm.
In this walk we will explore the Porter Valley. Starting from The Stag’s Head pub, we will walk down Sharrow Vale Road to the entrance of Endcliffe Park. We will then follow the River Porter as closely as we can past the Snuff Mill, through the General Cemetery to Waitrose and then back to The Stag’s Head pub for about 9 pm. Along the way we will examine community garden initiatives like Kenwood Community Growers, the wildflower meadow at Landsdowne and discuss flood mitigation along the Porter Valley and potential new developments at Waitrose.
Monday 21st June, 7.30pm – The Potting Shed
We are delighted to welcome Steven Cotton who will outline the work he does with the “ Potting Shed” which is a micro plant nursery based at the bottom of Kenbourne Road in Nether Edge. Plants are grown organically in peat free compost. The gardeners are young people who under the umbrella of the “Grow” charity are developing their interpersonal skills to prepare them for the world of work. Steven’s talk will be an important contribution to our understanding of sustainable gardening and to consider how we can support young people in these challenging times. Steven will talk for about 25 minutes and then there will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.
