Biodiversity and Environmental Projects
This is the bus shelter on Olney Road which has been installed with a living green roof.
The sedum plants growing on it are low growing succulents that send up short yellow flowers in summer, attracting bees, butterflies, insects and birds.
A "Buzz Stop" for local wildlife.
The plants also help absorb rainfall, slow down storm run-off and clean the air. They keep the shelter and surrounding area cooler in the heat of summer too.
Can you see other Green Roofs in Lavendon?
Yes, there are two more. The next time you are at the playing field look out for them.
This is all part of the Lavendon Neighbourhood plan aimed at the provision of biodiversity projects.
Kindly sponsored by David Wilson Homes
Within the neighborhood plan there is provision for biodiversity and environmental projects around the village and you can see a copy of the playing field plan by clicking here.
We are always happy to hear from volunteers, young and old (or very young as you can see in the picture) who would like to get involved in projects around the village.
