MANAGING OUR WILDFLOWER MEADOW

image image

We we watched Jonathan cutting our meadow. Many of the class were surprised that an electric strimmer was not used, Jonathan explained the many benefits of this more traditional method. We also got to see how this was so much safer for our residents of the path…

image Then it was the turn of the children, collecting the clippings and piling them at the side of the path to provide a rich habitat for overwintering – keep your eyes out on these piles, see if you can spot evidence of animals using them this winter.

Good to see year 5 working together so well, top teamwork today!

Thank you school grounds for including us in this important part of the maintenance of our Wiggly Path
