Youth Workshops 30 and 31st Aug 2007

The two days went off very well - weather good most of the time and the activities seemed to have been enjoyed by all.
There are now lots of lovely birdboxes scattered around plus an interesting bug box.

The woven 'igloo' is great and should improve with age - also the woven 'seats' and 'spider's web' make interesting features.

The two totems before lifting into place

The two totems are now upright (Saturday 1st September). They look very impressive - really nice that they've got the date on them.

One has, among other things, a lovely owl and ivy and the other has a sunflower and a swallow - plus the children's names.

Place and date

The Gardens were really busy with villagers dropping in to see the activities and have a chat - a great way for everyone to get to know each other.
This is the busiest these gardens have been since we don't know when. Lets hope this is the first of many activities held there.

On the days children took part in making bird and bug boxes, wood carving and helped to create a willow eco house. The occasion was voted a great success that benefited not only the children but the community as a whole.
