Hi everyone! We thought you’d love reading this post we received this week from Anthea Guthrie who contacted us regarding donating some of our fabulous children’s gardening products for a talk she’s going to be giving in April at the Cardiff RHS Show regarding her work at Heronbridge Special School. Anthea is an amazing garden designer and her passion for the subject is never ending!

“Running a special needs school kitchen garden is never dull – every week the children amaze me. No matter what their challenges every child can join in in some way – favourites are sweeping up fallen leaves, watering in the rain and for a teenager in a wheelchair, a chance to show off his good upper body strength by digging. Some kids are phobic about soil and dirt but seem happy to join in if they wear gloves. If all a child can do is point to the right place for someone else to plant a tree or scatter birdseed, they can all take part.
Huge excitement this week as the we are taking possession of an Eglu and it is time to go hen shopping. We are also about to put up a wireless CCTV nest box in time for the first brood of the season, and install our new wormery.
Can’t wait for the first eggs!”
