- creative writing and drawing activities
- gardening/food growing Q&A
- spring crafts and nature games for children, plus a nature trail/egg hunt.

We've got a great schedule planned for May Day... a celebration of hedgerows! From a look at traditional hedgelaying techniques, the diversity of plant species hedgerows include, and their importance for wildlife; to the experience of enjoying each change in season through walks alongside them, and wild food foraging.
