We hope you like these few photos of what we’ve been up to since we started the Polli:Nation project in April 2016.

In autumn we collect leaves for our compost bin every time we are outside.

Marina, the local Countryside Ranger and Polli:Nation fieldworker shows us how bees fly, and why they visit our flowers in the summer.

One of our flower beds – right by the door and in a lovely sheltered place.

We have great plans!

The effect was so good we will set up a full activity soon, with the Reception children leading it as they are already experts!
