Have you been to Whirlowbrook Park? It's on the south-west, Ecclesall side of the city, beside the Limb Brook Valley Round Walk, Whinfell Quarry Gardens and near Whirlow Hall Farm Trust. It is a beautifully designed landscape with a countryside feel and lots of space for children to run around.
The Friends of Whirlowbrook Park (FoWP) have been restoring the park and creating new features like the Tree Trail. They want to encourage children to engage with nature and have outdoor fun so they are now fundraising for the wild nature play area.
So they are holding a Plant Swap/Sale. Please bring along your spare plants, seedlings, perennials, herbs and wild flowers. Plus veg or fruit bushes, early harvests of rhubarb, other crops or cut flowers. Go home with fresh new stock. Cash only. Tool-sharpening service on the day (secateurs, loppers, shears, edge trimmers etc), also in return for a donation to the funds.
Haven't got anything to swap? No problem, come along to buy plants/make a donation. Bents Green Nursery will also be selling their beautiful plants. There will also be some grubby, hands on activity for kids.
Free entry - cash donations in exchange for plants, please.
