Natural Art

Join Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, Nestlé Waters and High Peak Borough Council for the second Community Day of Action at Ashwood Park on Wednesday 2nd March.

The day is packed full of events which will re-generate the area including planting seeds to create a wild flower meadow and planting bluebells in the wood to help create a new wet woodland habitat. There will also be some fun natural art activities and mini-beast hunting.

All these activities are designed to encourage people to support their local environment and community, as well as helping improve their own health and wellbeing.

It is all part of the “Get Better with Nature” campaign, a partnership between the two organisations which aims to raise awareness of the value of nature to health, wellbeing and communities across the UK.

The session will run all day from 10am – 3.30pm. It is free and completely open to all members of the public and their families. Bring wellies, waterproofs and some tasty snacks so you remain comfortable.

Three local Buxton schools; Burbage Primary school, Fairfield Juniors and Fairfield Infants, will be participating and have been involved throughout the project.

Other volunteer groups already signed up to take part on the day include employees of Nestlé Waters and Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, local community groups such as the Town Team, Bright Opportunities and Derbyshire Federation for Mental Health and students from Derby University.
