Wed 10th Dec 2008 - St Saviors School Totland



This week’s Green Gym was at St Saviours School, Summers Land, Totland. Our second visit to this venue, with the previous one being so hot and dry digging was a real challenge. This time we were planting beech, hawthorn, hazel and some field maple around the perimeter of their field, hopefully to provide a wind break when the trees mature. Another excellent turnout on a crisp, sunny, chilly day, with some excellent views across the Solent to the mainland and Hurst Castle. Some of us were digging holes - the task being much easier than previously - although some areas contained a lot of clay so were rather claggy, while others followed along actually planting the trees.
Thanks to Carrie for the text and pictures.
