keeping busy

Welcome to Greenhouse, this is our second post about what we have done in the week.

Today's post has been written by Liam, Craig and Dan as guest journalists giving you the top stories about Greenhouse.

Wood work

This week has been a busy week for wood work. We have built and painted a brand new leaf storage box. We repainted our birdhouses and flowerbeds. We also repaired and repainted our raised beds, fitting a new liner and filling them with soil.

As winter is in full flow, we have had the massive job of clearing leaves from our paths. There are so many leaves lying about that we've had to build new compost bins to fit it all!

As part of our partnership with Manor farm, we pack seed bags for the park. These seed bags can be purchased in the park to feed the birds.

Deep cleaning the kitchen
As with any busy kitchen you need to regularly deep clean, to maintain high standards and keep the kitchen safe and clean.

Bird feeders

 We have built several bird feeders around our site, we have also been making our own seed balls. The local birds have taken a liking to our bird feed recipe

So that's it for this week in Greenhouse, lots of fun and intersting things to come next week. Including building an outdoor drum kit and some new games to play in music and movements.

Many thanks to Liam, Dan and Craig for guest editing today's post and choosing our photos.

See you next week.
