Bug Hotels, Wildlife Ponds and NCS Volunteers

We have had a busy August, hosting volunteers from NCS from ages 15-17.

They battled 32 degree days to plan and start digging a new wildlife pond and had to avoid torrential summer rain and 50 mph winds. We really have had it all this month.

WILDLIFE POND CREATING

The volunteers researched and planned the new wildlife pond, measuring and digging on a very hot week in August. We are fundraising for the pond liner and hope to have the wildlife pond operating soon.

TYRE PAINTING

During one of the rainy days, the volunteers hid in the Petersfield Community Centre and painted designs on some donated tyres from ATS in Petersfield.

BUG HOUSE BUILDING

We hosted a bug house build as part of the bug house competition. Many great ideas were explored and the results were imaginative and the bugs will surely have many nights of happiness asleep in their new homes in the garden.
