We have been amazed how quickly the Spring and Summer of 2017 has come and nearly gone. We have been busy with lots of wood-carving and team building activities at fairs. Oakfield High School in Hindley Green has kindly asked us to join their land based students in installing new raised beds and composting bays on their school grounds. We had some fantastic times with the students who were so enthusiastic and keen to use the tools and build their own bed and bays. As a bumble bee nest was found on the site of the new composting bays, we had to be careful not to disturb this nest and allow the bees to carry on with as little disruption as possible. We then went back to deliver two days of team building activities on the school's final week of term. The whole school came through our activity "Save The World" (details on our activities and training page) and each student sowed a beetroot seed in a biodegradable pot. The school have promised to give us an update on their crop of beetroots once they return after the school holidays. We also had the pleasure of donating some brand new gardening equipment to the volunteer club at Wythenshawe Park in South Manchester. The volunteers work really hard in the park improving the green spaces and regenerating the habitats for the flora and fauna of Manchester. Southway Housing Trust kindly asked us to judge their annual eco-garden competition and we were very proud to present the winner with one of our bespoke handmade rustic nesting boxes (images in the gallery). So, we have been busy as ever, and job satisfaction is high working with One Green World.
