Behind the walls of the garden

Last time I visited the walled garden, writes HOT’s Zelly Restorick, sunflowers were blooming and produce was being harvested. This time, as I passed through the brick doorway, I spied crocuses, rosemary, buds and embryonic bloomings, children playing and adults leisurely preparing the ground for the new season of growth. I’d come to speak to new chairperson, Mary Dawson, to update me on the latest news.

Natural learning

Forest Schools offer children and adults a wonderful opportunity “to learn about nature and science by being there in person, not via books”, explained Martin Felstead of Sussex Wildlife Trust to HOT’s Zelly Restorick. She decided to find out more about the significant difference this outdoor learning project is making to the lives of some local children and adults.
