Inns Court Easter Fair

We are excited to be attending Inns Court Easter Fair this year and really hope to see lots of people there to chat to about what we are getting up to!!

We’ll be there to talk to folk about our organisation and how they can get involved in it, but we will also be bringing along sunflower seeds, pots and compost so children can sow the seeds and take them home to grow on. The plants can then either be planted out into their gardens or maybe in or around the estate, making little bursts of sunshine everywhere!!

Please do come along and say hi!!

What Happened on Apple Day?!

So when we did and it announced unforgiving and relentless rain, there was almost a feeling that it […]

Pollinators Poll: Wildflowers v Wasteland?

So we’ve been talking through various ideas, aims and project plans for 2015. Many of these are simply about continuing and expanding what we started this year, but some (to do with Pollinators and the Pollination story) involve new ideas and initiatives that we’d love to see happen. We have a chance now to apply for a small […]
