Pond dipping and tending the raised beds

Having marvelled at the water boatmen, caddis fly larvae, pond snails, water fleas and other exciting inhabitants of the new pond, a small band of new volunteers joined Juniper Hall’s Grounds and Estates Officer, Jeremy, clear the raised beds and herb garden and plant some bulbs and wonderfully scented herbs. The single April shower of the day coincided nicely with a break for lunch and Juniper Hall cakes!
