The Wildlife Watch group visit Aylestone Lane Community Allotment !
The children and their parents of the Wildlife watch group enjoyed walking around the allotment last Saturday morning.
Although there wasn't a lot to see on a sunny but cold March morning, the children could see that we were preparing the ground for beans and that we had plenty of seedlings in our poly tunnel. They were amazed that we had flowers on the broad beans, the peas and winter lettuce were also doing well in our poly tunnel.
The children near the "Edible Forest Garden"
They also planted cress seeds and sunflower seeds
They will be a competition for the tallest sunflower! so they planted them very carefully!
Here the children are planting seeds in our "Square Foot Garden"
We had a wonderful time, thank you to Jane and everyone from the Wildlife Watch!
