This winter has had its share of challenges and rewards at offshoots.
The pond in front of the Walter Segal building sprung a leak and needed emptying, relining and refilling. It was challenging for the volunteers to do this and preserve the habitat ready for the frogs – the frost made it even more so! The water was emptied bucket by bucket into a temporary container made from straw bails and a plastic sheet.
The rewards for the volunteers hard work? Winter harvest vegetables!
