Supported Interns get closer to nature


Well done to our Supported Internship students who have been doing some outdoor work experience for the Hirst Wood Regeneration Group - creating sensory gardens and homes for wildlife at the Hirst Wood Nature Reserve in Shipley!

The Hirst Wood Regeneration project is a community-supported group that was started in 2000. It now has over 600 households around Shipley and Saltaire involved in improving facilities and building a sense of pride in the neighbourhood. Visit their website to keep up-to-date with upcoming projects and see how you can get involved. 

The students worked with Horticulture tutors to complete the project, using the seed bombing technique to plant a wildflower meadow on the top of a new bug hotel. They also completely replanted a bed with fruits and herbs to create a sensory garden that will attract animals and insects.

Generous donations of plants were received from Carlton Nurseries in Allerton and cardboard tubes for the bug hotel were donated by House of Fabrics in Saltaire.

Huge thank you to Pauline from Hirst Wood Regeneration Group for helping organise the volunteer project and to Loretta for creating the amazing sign!
