Rainbows, Brownies and Guides hunt for bugs and plant some trees!

On Tuesday 18th June and Thursday 20th June, the Rainbows, Brownies and Guides paid a visit to help with some planting and to hunt for bugs.

The Rainbows took part in a bug hunt finding slugs, snails, frog hoppers and an unusual scorpian fly.

They then planted a brambley apple tree with the help of Steve Bailey. They are planning a return visit to check that how much it has grown.

The Brownies followed the Rainbows and helped to plant two more brambley apple trees. They also did some amazing team work and planted 156 wild flower and herb plugs into larger pots ready for planting out in September. Their final job was to plant herbs in the forest garden.

The Guides visited on Thursday evening and planted two crab apple trees. They finished the evening around a campfire, toasting marshmallows and singing songs.
