Wormery top up

Next week (8th -14th August) is National Allotment Week with events being orgaised by Allotment Socs. across the country.   As part of National Allotments Week young people aged 2-12 can take part in The Big Bug Hunt with their school or learning community!

The National Allotments Week theme for 2022 is Bugs, Bees and Broccoli and we want young people to head out into any green space and see what creepy crawlies they can find.

Being outside has such a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of children and the summer holidays are the perfect time for them to have fun outdoors and learn a bit about their surroundings.

Pupils at schools and early years settings taking part can email a pictures or a scan of their finished worksheet with their name, the school's name and address to natsoc@nsalg.org.uk by 14th August.

As I am organising a Compost Safari at three different locations over the week I have topped up the wormery from which most of the compost and worms  will be taken. Other bugs will be added from the demonstration site as available.     

We are at Stokes Wood Allotment ( Leicester) 10.30 -12 Wednesday morning,with  the cafe  open for drinks, hot cobs and breakfast.

Measham Community Library on Saturday  13th and Groby Allotment, Ratby Road site, on Sunday 14th  as part of their Open Day.
