Families Go Wild! 7th April 2018

Today was a great first session for our new Family Volunteering Lead, Ilana.

We spent a whole 2 hours in the garden, and got all our jobs done!

We added some herbs to the sensory garden - a sage plant and a small rosemary shrub. They are great additions to the space, inviting us to use more of our senses when experiencing plants.

We also used pot makers to make plant pots from old newspaper! This is a great way to cut down our use of plastic in the garden, and to make our practice more sustainable. We learned that the pots will biodegrade and become part of the soil!

We weeded containers in our sensory garden area, and potted up some flowers and wild strawberry plants that had been found around the farm.

Importantly, we spent lots of time chatting and getting to know each other, as well as finding worms in the beds and soil, which we collected in a corner of the raised bed, in a worm hotel!
