MITZVAH DAY: Jewish volunteers help take care of special Croxley grassland

 Published on: 8th December 2022   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

The Friends of Croxley Common Moor (FCCM) hosted visitors from the Northwood and Pinner Liberal Synagogue for a volunteering session last month.

The event took place on Sunday, November 20, and coincided with Mitzvah Day, a yearly day of volunteering in the Jewish community.

FCCM has a long-standing relationship with the synagogue, which has adopted Croxley Common Moor as a volunteering project for the past several years.

The task was scrub clearance, FCCM’s regular task from September to March. This is essential for the benefit of the wildflowers, the abundance and diversity of which makes Croxley Common Moor a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Without scrub clearance, plus cattle grazing in the spring and summer, the moor would gradually change from grassland into woodland.

FCCM welcome visiting parties of volunteers from faith groups, companies, youth groups and more. They also provide all necessary tools and protective clothing.
