Park School Eco Garden Update

We've finished our stint at Park Junior School.  Working on their Eco Garden has been an exciting project and given our staff an opportunity to let their imaginations' go.  The pictures show the types of things that have been developed including stone crop, story telling circles and viewing areas.

Planting and sowing of fruit bushes, nectar rich plants and wildflowers over the coming months will complete the transformation of a dull corner of a field into something of an oasis for wildlife which will enrich the nature studies for the children.

The pond is already being frequented by a pair of Mallards! It's hard to explain the full project so here are a few pictures starting with the garden gate...
