Willow Weaving and Bug Hotel
A big thank you to Kate Lemon from the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust for donating her time and willow crop this Saturday.
It was great to see some new volunteers this week who worked with Kate to create the start of the hedgerow willow arch and large half circle at the corner of the wild flower meadow which will house a bench. As the planted willow whips grow, we’ll be able to complete the structures by joining the ends and weaving more willow to strengthen both structures.
While the willow was being planted, the children did a great job creating our first bug hotel.
