Friends of Woodcock Park by Kenton Grange

Transforming derelict spaces into pollinator rich biodiversity gardens

Pollinator Biodiversity Garden

This beautiful, south-facing walled area is part of the old Kenton Grange gardens to the north of the brook. It had become a magnet for anti-social behaviour, was fenced off and became overgrown. However, we still had issues with anti-social behaviour. We have worked with Brent Council and local volunteers to clear this land since spring 2022. We are now working on autumn plantings to produce year round flowers. We are focusing on pollinator plants for late autumn, winter and early spring, but are grateful for any nectar rich flowering plants and insect habitats. Bulbs, corms, tubers, dwarf fruiting trees, bushes and climbers are all very welcome!

Friends of Woodcock Park have worked with local schools and school children for many years and are developing a mosaic for the pollinator biodiversity garden with local children, as well as plantings and other fun activities. We are developing new paths and beds, habitats to support pollinators’ breeding, and have secured funding from a number of sources to help with some of this work. We won Gold in the London in Bloom Awards for Large Park each of the last two years, and have also achieved a Level 5 – Outstanding ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ Award from the Royal Horticultural Society and Britain In Bloom this year.
