On Friday October 19th Moulsecoomb Station was officially adopted by Moulsecoomb Forest Garden and Wildlife Project working alongside Moulsecoomb Primary, Sussex Community Rail Partnership and station manager Andy Gardner.
The Moulsecoomb Forest Garden and Wildlife project offers qualifications to pupils struggling at school and workdays bustling with a wide range of people. In particular it offers volunteering opportunities to people with learning difficulties and it is this melting pot of people that makes the project so special.
The project now has nine plots growing organic food, fed from enormous compost bins, with wildlife ponds, a compost loo, bee hives and a bee garden. The team have now added another plot to their workload with the creation of a wildlife garden at Moulsecoomb Station in conjunction with Moulsecoomb Primary, Sussex Community Rail Partnership officer Catherine Simmons and station staff.
