This week our volunteers met with Lucy, the new farm manager at The Fold, to do some odd jobs around the farm such as cleaning the greenhouse windows and weeding around the edges.
A couple of us headed down to nature trail to clear the way for our board walk which was started on Monday, after we cleared the path we measured 20 metres and marked with sticks and tape where the rest of the path would go.
Tash spent the day working hard on making our first Bambee (see below) and we placed him along the trail.
We then joined the rest of the group at the top of the farm to help finish off.
What's a Bambee? We hear you ask...
As part of our conservation work we are helping to build wildlife habitats, as well as teaching about conservation through our educational toolkit.
A "Bambee" is a habitat for bees, made from a range of materials and it mimics the kind of environment which solitary bees can thrive in. Bee populations can be helped through these "bee hotels", as they are important pollinators in nature. Our bee hotel is shaped like a deer, hence the name (Bambi + bee = bambee)
