Birds fly into paradise

paradise community garden group


A developing community garden in Glastonbury hosted its first event recently with local residents making nest boxes and feeders to attract more birds and bees to the site, with a little help from the Avalon Marshes Project.

The Gardens, situated on the Paradise Housing Estate, were the idea of resident and founding member Sally Morningstar who for the last few months has been tending some previously neglected areas to benefit butterflies, bees and other local wildlife. She commented “It has been wonderful to watch the Gardens grow as more people become interested in joining the project and with these new boxes and feeders, we should see many more species in the coming months.”

Paradise Community Gardens is a Knightstone Housing sponsored project on the Paradise Housing Estate in Glastonbury. Everyone is welcome to join either as a Friend or a Resident and membership is free. Please go to their website to find out more:
