  • Value of Grant: £750
  • Planned Completion: April 2025

Project: Pond restoration and wildflower improvement

Green Space Location: Meltham/ Honley

Volunteers Involved: 10 | Expected Hours: 100

Detail: Pond Plants & Wildflower Plug Plants


To plant one of the ponds with more native plants and then once established split them to use in our other ponds. We would also like to plant some more wildflowers including Birdsfoot Trefoil onsite. We would particularly like to plant Birdsfoot Trefoil because we have Dingy Skipper butterflies onsite and this is the main food source for Dingy Skipper butterflies which have been recorded on site.
