Following on from the success of our first Project Dirt we have secured funding to transform an area of Bilton Hall’s outdoor field to create a Community Forest School area. Local families have been coming along every week to help develop the area and learn new skills. They have been planting trees, digging and planting butterfly and wildflower gardens, making bug hotels, bee homes, building a play caterpillar, doing woodwork, using tools and building.
The area has taken on a huge transformation since we started back in Spring 2018 and we are hoping to deliver funded projects and paid sessions to the local community, schools and groups. This project is on-going and is constantly developing and growing, basing directions on community ideas.
