The 2nd Malton Avenue Bolton at Home Landscape Masterclass took place at the start of the holidays on Saturday 24th.
It was great to see over 30 participants from the local community joining in the 2nd Masterclass - even the wet start didn't appear to put anyone off with helping out with the transformation of this land.
A big THANK YOU to everyone who joined in and made it a superb day!
Final preparation of the ex-garage site including preparation of the climbing mound, stone picking and grading & bulb planting, and wildflower and grass seed sowing - right hand side of site
Many of the helpers aged from only 4 years old, enjoyed planting of wildflower seed and the setting out and planting of over 1000 daffodils!
The site has been well looked after carefully by the community during this delicate period with zero vandalism which has allowed the grass on the kickabout area to germinate successfully (pictured below) this is now thickening up and will soon be ready for mowing!
The next Masterclass later in the year will involve tree planting including planting of fruit trees requested by many of the participants, native hedging and more flowers. It is also hoped that a willow arch workshop will be held during the forthcoming week with Cool Canvas.
Early next year - as shown on the plan (crop circle top left) spring wheat will be planted to form Bolton's first a crop circle! When grown the wheat will form a maze.
