Volunteering: Himalayan Balsam pull at Mosser

13th June 2021

Join us at Mosser from 10am to 3pm on Sunday 13 June (don’t worry if you can’t stay for the full session - join us for as long as you can!). 

Himalayan Balsam is an invasive, non-native plant that prevents native species from growing, chokes our waterways, and causes riverbank erosion. We’ll be pulling it up - no experience is necessary as we’ll show you what to do. Everyone is welcome - as long as you are happy bending down and pulling up plants! Under 18s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Please bring wellies or boots, gardening gloves, clothing suitable for the weather, and some food and drink. Long trousers and sleeves are preferable. Tools will be provided. Limited parking is available but there are no facilities on site.

How to book 

Places are limited due to current restrictions so please let us know you’ll be coming by booking a place:

Can’t make the whole event but still want to get involved? No problem, just please make sure you arrive at the beginning of the session so you don’t miss the demo!
