Been Away Too Long

After a long winter break, we finally took some of our festival activities out for a road-test at Lancaster University’s Community Day on 6th May.
It all went down a treat. Visitors had a lot of fun playing our “pick a pollinator” fishing game, identifying animal poo, discovering the magical smells of mushrooms, and hitting our “soil strengthometer” as hard as they possibly could.
We received around 800 visitors during the 6 hours at Lancaster Square, so we were really relieved to have plenty of help from some very excellent PhD Students – many thanks to Rosanne, James, Kasia, and Thomas.
We had to make do with a bog-standard gazebo, as our new stall is still in the works. But at least now it has a door.
All in all it was a great day and good preparation for our next event… roll on Glasto 2017!
