Huge thanks to Pip, Ian and Cheryl from the Leatherhead Residents
Association for their help this weekend, I don’t think we could have finished
the beds without you.
The weekend also saw the harvesting of the Early (New) potatoes
which had plenty, during which we came across stag beetle larvae!
Stag beetle larvae are extremely rare and endangered these days
and are currently protected under Schedule 5 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act
1981.We have moved it to its own “private” bed with plenty of wood chip to feast
on and we hope to help these endangered beetles at thegarden.
The garden is open from 9am every Saturday and new volunteers are
most welcome or if you just want to pop by and have a look at the work that has
been completed already.
Photos to follow!
