Thank you to the Eco Team and all the children who came to Gardening Club over the Easter holidays. They were very busy bees: creating plant pots and bird houses; preparing the planters; cleaning up the pond area or a nauture garden; planting some fruits and vegetables; creating 3 new bug hotels and planting lots of wild flowers to help maintain and attract our local wildlife. We were all exhausted after two days of very hard work but are looking forward to seeing our results over the next months.
