Comments Comments Off on ‘Spider Drama’ Spins Story At Wolf Fields
A ‘spider drama’ will underline the message that insects matter when A Rocha UK hold an open day at Wolf Fields community garden next month.
The main aim of the 13th July event will be to celebrate the winners of the recent sensory garden competition and present them with their plaques.
Other activities will include – bug hotel making, a demonstration bee hive, a bee story by a local storyteller, tours of the site in a nature trail style, digging up the first potatoes from the allotment, and refreshments.
A Rocha UK team members and volunteers will be joined by representatives from schools and churches, along with local residents. ‘People will be able to see the site, our plans for it, and to talk about why we’re trying to transform it,’ said Conservation Officer Becky Vickers.
The open day will run from 2-5pm, with the ceremony and welcome at 3pm.
‘The activities are relevant – such as the bee story and demo bee hive – because we’ll have bees on site eventually,’ Becky explained.
‘Bug hotel making and spider drama also link in as we want the site to benefit biodiversity, especially pollinators.’
