The Cornfield Project funded by Kew Gardens ‘Grow Wild’ is running two public consultation evenings. The first one will be this evening (5th April) at Ballysally Primary School from 7-8pm or Wednesday (6th April) at Millburn Primary School from 7-8pm.
The community based project is about transforming a currently neglected woodland into a beautiful wildflower and nature space, aiming to engage with people from the Coleraine community and wider.
In November 2015, The Cornfield Project were announced as the Northern Ireland Flagship site for Grow Wild winning a £120,000 grant. The plans are in place and The Conservation Volunteers will be working alongside the project to develop the site and improve it’s natural habitat. There will be community training gardens, a wetland area, a sensory garden, wild foraging areas, bird box’s, bat box’s and lots more!
