Bradgate Park Wildlife Weekend
We had an average of 90+ visitors to the composting stand at the wildlife weekend on both days in spite of the rain. This is one of the events where we concentrate on hands-on activities having a small compost safari with material from our wormeries and giving children a chance to make a dozen seedballs using a wild flower mix or poppy seeds.
The main problem, other than the rain, was that Simon our most adventurous snail kept making a run for freedom but luckily he was only moving at a snails pace so we managed to catch him. The small microscopes that fit smartphones proved very popular with some of our adult visitors
