At the allotment

All my articles, videos and work are funded by my teaching and sales of award winning bumblebee nest boxessolitary bee boxes,  and wormeries.

Children from Year 3 have been taking part in the “Little Dibbers” project run by the local community organisation Arch and overseen by George Pilkington of Nurturing Nature

Spraying the plants with seaweed

Once a week, they visit the local allotments and plant and tend a raised-bed garden. The project is long-term; children plant, tend, harvest, cook and eat the crops they grow.
