|With students at Harrow College today|
There were stalls on energy saving, bee keeping, water conservation, the wildlife area, recycling and People and Planet. I was particularly impressed by the work staff and students from the SLDD (Students with Learning Difficulties and Disabilities) were undertaking creating a pond, wild flower meadow and insect and mammal habitats. The students were selling some of their potted plants as Mother's Day presents to help raise money for their project.
|Inside the Poly Tunnel|
|The Poly Tunnel pond had tadpoles already with growth hastened by the heat|
|Students have painted a Hockney style mural on the container in the wildlife area to blend with the surroundings|
|Log piles provide habitats for insects and small mammals|
|Creating habitats from recycled materials|
|A competition win enabled the college to install a 12ft pond with stduents doing the digging out|
|Students at their stall|
I hope the muntjac let the plants grow!
