First National Citizen Service day in the garden

We had 23 sixteen and seventeen year olds spend the day in the garden with us today

- we will have about 100 over the summer. The scheme encourages them to work in the community and do 30 hours of volunteering. Today they cleared paths, picked elderflowers for cordial, helped us in our meadow regeneration work by digging out barrowfuls of Docks, prepared materials for the compost and shredder and watered all the fruit, veg and flowers in the pots and green house!!
