As Sam ran from Kingswood House to arrive at Thorlands fifteen minutes late, he did not miss much as the team: Diane, Elizabeth and Jo were just getting started at the border between the kitchen garden and Forest garden.

It was Elizabeth first visit to Thorlands as Simon recognized Diane from a few months back.

Simon set out our tasks to continue putting the wood log border down as he identified that the compost heap area will turn into a wild flower bed. Elizabeth and Sam concentrated on digging a small trench and putting in the logs whilst Diane and Jo did some weeding as well as levelling off the mulch near the kitchen garden entrance.

All this great work was done within an hour and a bit whilst we discussed Spring cleaning and life admin tasks! 💪
