How many leaves are there on a tree?
This was just one of the many random questions that we discussed as we swept and collected the fallen leaves over several weeks. Each week we thought that we’d finished, but more magically materialised.
Anyone who thinks that winter is jobless should come to Kingswood Trust. Work has continued at pace. Along with general tidying and leaf removal, the pond has been cleared of the invasive New Zealand pigmyweed. There was much hilarity as volunteers became stuck in the gloopy mud. A new pond was dug alongside the original one…yet more sticky, gloopy mess. Both ponds were then lined with some donated, highly unfashionable, multi-coloured carpet before the enormous liners were unrolled and dragged into position… yet more laughs.
Indoors, equally important tasks of putting together packs for school groups, filing and cleaning of the bug hotels have been taking place.
There’s something for everyone to do here!
And the answer to the question, “How many leaves are there on a tree?” … we decided, LOTS!
