'Wetlands Day' at Susan's Farm
We planned our first nature day to be at the Aglionby Wetlands site,
but water was coming down from the sky and water was coming up from the river,
so we relocated to Susan’s Farm in Houghton.
Nature got the better of our Nature Day.
A range of ages enjoyed the rearranged day
as we engaged with some path clearance,
fungi recognition, farming activities a visit to the Gosling Sike Wetlands.
Susan provided Palestine Soup (Jerusalem Artichokes),
rolls and organic fruit for lunch.
We concluded the day with a round-up of what we had learnt
along with some nature poetry.
Our thanks to Susan Aglionby for the warm education centre
and an opportunity to be on her farm.
We are working on a new date for the Aglionby Wetlands.
This event was partly paid for with a grant from Cumbria Council Council.
