The welcoming committee

Despite the rain, we had another great open day. A chance for pupils we work with to show off their skills and other schools to visit to see what we do. For our volunteers friends and families to see their work; a chance for people to find out about our outdoor classroom, woodland skills, composting, bee-keeping and of course a chance to make and stuff your face with pizzas and wash it down with a smoothie! 

Moulsecoomb Primary Year 1 came up in the morning to harvest the garlic they planted in the autumn as well as rocket and basil for their pizzas they made in our outdoor clay oven.

Carly and our pizza oven were very busy all day
