Volunteers preparing to sow a meadow

The Conservation Volunteers Green Gym have once again teamed up with Camden Council to seed new wildflower meadows in selected parks and gardens across Camden. This exciting project will see large swathes of parks converted into productive and biodiverse meadows, which will provide new habitats for London's butterflies, bees and birds.

More than 5 meadows will be extended and re-seeded this Spring across Camden totaling almost 4000m2 of new habitats. The meadows will include a fantastic mix of corn flowers, marigolds, ox-eye daisies, sunflowers and yellow-rattle.

The largest of the meadows will be in Euston Square Gardens, sandwiched between Euston station and Euston Road this will be enjoyed by tens of thousands of commuters, tourists and local residents every week.
