Emma took Jon, Harry and rich to continue with the tyre steps while Tash, Robyn and our new volunteer Sarah cleared the nettles and litter from the top part of the hump.
With some of the sawn up logs from the bottom half of the trail, myself, Jack and Maria cleared a section on the hump and laid the logs in a semi circle pattern and made a small camp fire in the middle. We then came up with the idea of an outdoor classroom for when schools visit.
At lunch the group met and sat around our new camp. After we had eaten, Tash took some members of the group to meet Lucy, the new farm manager, and help around the farm and collect Food Co-op orders. To finish off the camp we laid down some fresh wood clippings just in time to pack away.

We celebrated National Gardening Week, an event set up 4 years ago by the Royal Horticultural Society to encourage more people to appreciate the beautiful landscapes we have in this country. Events were going on up and down the country, and here ate Roots we decided to make the most of the week working on our own garden (of sorts) at the Nature Trail!
We're slowly transforming our Nature Trail to be more accessible so people can enjoy the natural beauty of the place; adding in more tyre steps, a "camp", an outdoor classroom & barbecue area, and removing pesky nettles!
We also took a trip to the end of the Nature Trail next to the River Teme, where we found huge amounts of delicious wild garlic! It goes to show that Nature really is the best provider!
