Green Fingers are a voluntary organisation helping to keep Camposol Sector C "Clean and Green".
There are a number of ways to support Green Fingers work in the community:
Can you spare a few hours a week?
If you would like to offer your help to our volunteers, please turn up at the Welcome Wall at 9am on Wednesday mornings and your work will be rewarded with a free breakfast. There are plenty of lighter duties we need help with including bucket collections.
Our Maintenance Team continues their regular programme; weeding, sweeping and spraying the streets of C North every week. The chemical we use is pet friendly, so there is no danger to animals and will control regrowth during warmer months.
If you live or own a holiday home on Camposol C please consider joining our scheme – the cost is only €15 every quarter.
If you are unable to make a monetary donation, our workers always appreciate drinks and we are happy to have your unwanted plants or decorative pots (chipped or broken is fine) to decorate the verges. Every donation to our bucket or raffle, every ticket sold for our social events, every payment to the Maintenance Scheme and every contribution made by local businesses all contribute towards a caring community. As part of that community, we ask you to please be vigilant; if you see any suspicious activity, please get in touch; all information will be treated confidentially.
Do you own a business in Camposol?
Everybody including local businesses benefit from the work done by Green Fingers. If you have a local business, please contact Green Fingers about advertising on our website or on one of our planted areas located around Sector C.
If there is communal land close to your property Green Fingers encourage residents to "adopt and maintain" the area themselves. It is probably best to use plants which require low amounts of watering. If you need any information or advice on growing and looking after plants just ask one of our team who are out on Wednesday mornings. We can often provide cuttings of low-maintenance plants to help get you started.
If you have a tree on Sector C that you would like to adopt, please tie a ribbon around it so Green Fingers know and water at least once a week unless there has been recent heavy rainfall. We can suggest suitable trees.
Green Fingers plant species native to the Murcia region encouraging local wildlife to flourish.
Many of the trees that Green Fingers plant can survive without watering once they mature providing habitats for birds and bats. Low level planting provides natural habitats for bees and other pollenating insects, small mammals and lizards.
We have placed several bat boxes around Sector C in a bid to help control the Camposol mosquito population. Bats are also used as natural predators against pine processionary caterpillars in Alicante.
There is also a Green Fingers owl box near the Golf Club.
A single bat can eat up to 1000 mosquitoes an hour.
