Wildlife pond workshop

On Saturday 30th July we created a wildlife and bee-dipping pond in our Bee Education Area, as part of the Grow Wild project in association with Kew Gardens. The workshop was led by Ian Willsdon, one of our volunteer board members, and attended by several local people, as well as Richard from Kew Gardens.

We also created a mini cottage-garden adjacent to the pond, and continued with some groundworks of the bee project area. Many thanks to Ian for leading this workshop, to Jill for providing lunch, and to Teesh, Sonia, Karl, Penny, Pierre, Kate, Arron, Julia and Jake for attending.
