Apple Day 24 September 2016 – We all had a fantastic afternoon with over 40 people, a lot of whom had never been to the garden before. We had prepared it well with lots of lovely Welsh cakes and apple fritters made to order. Children made apple and blackberry crumbles to take home. We had a craft corner where children made apple creatures, apple print bunting, model insects and lots of paintings. The pond provided pond dipping opportunities – our greater pond snails have multiplied but we also found dragonfly larvae, frogs and many smaller insects. The littlest children chilled out in the willow dome and played in the sand pit. And there was lots of produce to take away as well. All free of charge. Roll on Apple Day 2017!
