Event description
Come and help lay the turf for the Naturescape at Florence Park!

About this Event

We are looking for some fantastic volunteers to help us lay the turf needed for the new Naturescape, which is starting to come to life in Florence Park this year! Naturescape is a new project, which is transforming the old mini golf course into a interactive nature space for the whole community - www.naturescapeoxford.co.uk

In line with the government guidance under lockdown, we are asking for volunteers to use their hour of daily exercise to help us lay the turf needed for the new Naturescape project. We are looking for pairs of people from the same bubbles/family to sign up for a one hour time slot (please select your time when booking) to help us get this this first stage of design complete. These workshop style guided slots will be run by Trevor from Wildflower Turf and Kate and Laura from Oxford Garden Partners in line with social distancing regulations. You will get involved with laying a section of turf as well as watering it in.

All participants will be given information/certificates describing the species used, wildlife/habitat value of the turf and laying method.

We are asking all volunteers who are able to bring their own watering can with a rose, but do not worry if you do not have one.

Due to Covid-19 regulations, we only have some limited spaces available to volunteers - so sign up soon to get involved!

Guidance for the event:

- One ticket is for one pair of volunteers from the same household to attend (you do not need to book individual tickets) a one hour slot. Please make sure you choose the right time slot when booking - we will not be able to be flexible with time change on the day. Maximum 2 attendees per booking.- This workshop is suitable for adults and young people over 12 years old. Anyone under 18 needs to be accompanied by an adult.

- This workshop is taking place outdoors and on a site which may be very muddy! Please do come along in suitable gardening / outdoor clothes and footwear.

- All participants not from the same household or bubble will need to maintain social distancing from other participants/workshop leaders. Hand sanitiser will be available for use on site. Please do not attend if you are experiencing of have recently experienced any symptoms associated with Covid-19, or if you have been in contact with anyone who has.

- Should the current regulations around volunteering or exercise change change, we may need to cancel or postpone the workshop. We may also need to cancel in the event of extreme weather.

We look forward to seeing you and starting work on this beautiful space!
