Hartley farm mandala
Pictured above is one of the beautiful mandalas made by the children who visited us at the Hartley Farm Summer fayre today. Practically perfect isn’t it? A bit of wild art to delight the soul.

 Lots of the children’s activities I’ve been running with the National Trust over the school holidays have tied in with their ’50 things’ campaign to encourage children and parents to get up close and personal with nature and the seasons. The Autumn is one of the best times to start with plenty to see and do and that promised Indian Summer.

Lucy and I will be back at Hartley Farm on October 5th for a morning’s hedgerow foraging and cooking in the open air. We have 12 spaces available for children aged 5-12 at a cost of £12 for two hours. Email me at cally@countrygate.co.uk for further details or to subscribe to my newsletter which will tell you about other events around the local area. Don’t worry. I won’t bombard you with unwanted mail or pass your details on to anyone else.

Enjoy the rest of the holidays.
