Lending a Hand - Gunnersbury Park Re-generation Project

25th October 2019


Wild Frontiers staff turned their hand to a spot of gardening over the summer, volunteering (some newly found) digging, weeding and planting skills to help re-generate Gunnersbury Park in West London.

Dating back to at least the 11th century with a succession of wealthy owners across the centuries, Gunnersbury Park was purchased for the nation from the Rothschild family and opened to the public in 1926. This glorious 186 acre space of parkland, paths and ponds, woodland, kitchen garden and stately buildings is a wonderful community asset right on the doorstep of our new offices.

 

Small teams from Wild Frontiers joined Gunnersbury Park gardening staff to turn over Rothchild’s listed flowerbeds ready for the planting of 20,000 new blubs, weed and dig a tree circle around a beautiful 250-year-old beech tree to help protect it for future generations.

Thank you to Chris, Spencer and the Gunnersbury Park team for the guidance and good company! 

"It really has been a pleasure and we have all enjoyed Wild Frontiers coming. Thanks for everything you have done, it has made such a big difference and the public feedback has been great," - Chris, Park Manger, Gunnersbury Park
