winter challenges and rewards

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!
