When covid guidelines prevented rangers accessing school grounds, our afterschool nature club with Bunessan Primary moved location to the new community garden. Children are collected from school by the ranger and volunteers, and together walk along a safe cycle path to the garden. We've planted trees for a new hedge, fruit bushes, beans and peas...and watched them grow. We've investigated how composting works, looked for minibeasts that help the process and created habitat piles with logs. We've taken part in managing the wildflower meadow, looked for animal tracks and signs and learned to recognise birdsong. We've built a den out of branches. In winter we were stargazing and learning about hibernating and nocturnal creatures. Children proudly show visitors their contributions to the garden which is being created by teams of adult volunteers although soon to employ paid workers to facilitate the next developments. A parent-led outdoor playgroup also meets here.
