On Wednesday 27th July 4 members of staff from the Cheshunt Office, Eurovia Surfacing and Contracting South took part in a volunteer day at Lee Valley Park removing Himalayan Balsam.
Himalayan Balsam is a major weed problem, especially on riverbanks and waste land. These invasive species grow vigorously and can out-compete our native plants. By removing them we can maintain diversity within the riverbanks and grasslands.
Last year, on a Corporate Volunteer Day a group of 9 staff members went to a different part of the park carrying out the same task, which is how initial contact was made with Lee Valley Park.
