Our Volunteer programme has been up and running for two years wih most encouraging results. The Friends of Cannizaro are responsible for the planting and maintenance of the Herb Garden, where you will find a variety of herbs flourishing happily. We also maintain the Iris Beds and the Rose Garden, and lend a hand wherever else we can in the Park. We meet regularly on Tuesday mornings at 10.30 (weather permitting) in the Herb Garden.
All volunteers will be expected to attend a brief training session before starting. This will ensure that every volunteer is confident in handling equipment, has sufficient knowledge of tasks and is briefed on health and safety. All volunteers will be covered by insurance from Merton Council.
Over the winter months our stalwart team of Volunteers has been clearing brambles and ivy in several areas of the Park to ensure that the azaleas, roses, hydrangeas and other lovely bushes will flourish this year. We're already seeing the fruits of our labours with new buds and leaves appearing everyday.
Most rewarding this month is the wonderful display of daffodils, after our planting of 1,000 bulbs last autumn. Do come and meet us if you are in the Park on a Tuesday morning to find out more about our work.
