Hello folks

Sorry we’ve not been posting that frequently recently, we’ve had a lot going on within our various projects. We’d love to say we’ve been getting a great tan with all this outdoor work but no….more like getting drenched:( haven’t those slugs and snails been having the best time though?! Lording it frankly! Lovely to see a bit more sun now! September is often a good month! Weather permitting this month we will be out foraging for blackberries and hawthorn berries (and anything else we can find!) for our Fruit and Nut Tree project on the following dates – children welcome with adults. Wear a sturdy pair of boots, long sleeves & gloves and bring some containers to take some harvest home for your own delicious recipes.
