Local Leap Day

What a lovely day to take a local leap into the community!

We started at Helston Children's Centre and dug over their vegetable plots and made some new wooden surrounds for the herb and vegetable beds.

We also had great fun making an insect hotel with the expert help of Karen from Cornwall Neighbourhoods for Change, using just a few old wooden pallets filled with twigs and straw. This provided a great place for bugs and beetles to live, as well as giving the children the opportunity to discover more about the creepy crawlies in their garden.

We then went onto Sithney Primary School to dig up an invasive bush in the corner of their onsite garden. This has cleared a space for the children to do some digging and planting, and was good exercise for us!

It was brilliant to be out and about in the sunshine and a good excuse to get nice and muddy!
