We have lost more than half of our rural hedges in the past 50 years. In the Green Up Your Act after school Eco Clubs we have been planting hawthorn, hazel, holly, dog rose, dogwood silver birch, rowan, wild cherry and even royal oak sapling. The hedges help wildlife by providing cover, food and ‘connectivity’ – they act as green corridors through urban areas. All the children have enjoyed digging the holes and planting in the knowledge a hedgerow will be growing as they grow up. I would like to take this oppertunity to thank Vegware for its on going support and for donating 100 compostable cups, which the children have used to plant a variety of seeds and seedlings to take home and grow over the Easter holiday.
