RHS school gardening

Just a quick plug for the RHS and the super work they are doing promoting gardening in school.

Through registering you get a welcome pack of advice and chances to gain more rewards. There are competitions to give your school gardening a target or focus. There are useful guides for identifying flowers, pollinators, parts of mini-beasts. Lots of useful resources for teachers. 

My new units garden area is a mess of weeds in the planters and strawberry plants growing on the path. So my first step is going to be clearing. My outdoor job for next week isn’t a gardening job. I want to put some mini-beast identification sheets up around the bug hotel. I’ve found a few children digging around it and want to extend it further. As little effort as a of w posters and magnifying glasses will be I reckon it will draw a lot of children back in to investigate. We have a lack of evidence for the world and some mini-beast hunting and gardening will help build up our evidence.
