Elizabeth Forbes-Jones completed their first run in a new area.
Curious? Elizabeth has just run their first session in another area. For that explorative spirit Elizabeth is awarded the scout badge. A Scout is trustworthy

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.
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! 💪

It was the second Sunday in a row that we were at the Farm!
Bex had a few tasks in mind, but due to the frost and frozen ground some of the gardening tasks had to be changed.
Our first task was to sweep out the Goats courtyard. After 20 minutes, we were finished with this task with much success that the animal volunteering team wanted us to help them out sweep the Sheeps living quarters, so we did this in the same amount of time before we got started with the gardening tasks.
The team were split into two. Julian and Marta started out with Sam to bag up manure and they did 12 bags (3 wheelbarrow loads) in 20 minutes whereas Elizabeth and Rebecca who started out pruning the wooden arch, did 10 bags in 15 minutes.
All apart from Sam stayed to feed the animals.
Don't forget the next session at the Farm is on February 5th.
