Lismore Circus Community Woods
Rochester Square Community Garden
Lismore Circus Community Woods is a volunteer-run ‘urban hedgerow’ green space tucked into a corner of Lismore Circus in Gospel Oak NW5. It has been maintained and developed continuously by local resident volunteers since 2000 and is largely planted with traditional hedgerow plants and shrubs including dog rose, black thorn, hawthorn, common oak, as well as many wild flowers and other plants. Although particularly beautiful in early spring, the woods are a calm shady oasis all year round. The core group always welcomes new volunteers to join work parties, and also welcome donations of plants, tools and materials. They meet most Sunday afternoons (weather permitting); in summer months you can expect to find them on site at 3pm. Contact email@example.com for more information
Mortimer Terrace Nature reserve runs alongside the GO – Barking part of the Overground Line behind the houses on Gordon House Road. Open for volunteers to help out on workdays first Sunday of every month from about 11am. Contact jeanne pendrill, firstname.lastname@example.org, for volunteer days .
