This project is part of our work for the Beaconsfield Community Board.
We worked with five year 5 Keyworker students and their teacher to plant a fruit tree avenue and seven pollinator patches with each year group’s number drilled into ash logs from our woodlands so the signs were turned into habitat for insects! Wood chip was used from our woods for the edging. Planting included currant bushes which are the food plant for the currant clearwing moth, a priority species for the local area. It would be highly beneficial if local people could do similar planting in their gardens to connect up the habitat in the local area.
Keyworker children from every year group are sowed seed donated by Habitat Aid today and have a watering can each to take back to their year group to keep their patch well watered.
