Pearson Park has been awarded nearly £27,000 to fund new areas within the gardens.

The funding will allow the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, who run the park, to build a bespoke greenhouse, develop new planting areas and create information boards to help visitors during their time at the garden.

Pearson Park Wildlife Garden is celebrating receiving £26,852 with a “Biffa Award” that will help to create new habitats for wildlife and improved spaces for the community to enjoy.

Volunteers who work at the park will also benefit from short training courses.

Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s Hull Community Officer Harriet Linfoot says:

“For many years we have not had a space for bringing on the vegetables and wildflowers we grow within the garden. Our volunteers have kindly been growing at home and bringing bits in. Having a greenhouse they can use here within the garden will mean we can really stretch our gardening wings and make the most of the vegetable garden we have.

“We have long wanted to be able to provide visitors with a real sense of all the wildlife that calls this garden home; from the fox we recently spotted having a stroll, to the range of birds, many of which are currently establishing their nests.

“Our volunteer team meet each Friday and are an invaluable asset. The garden is truly a product of the local community and we aim to encourage others to come and join us either as a visitor or volunteer.”
