Annual poo pick

We joined with Friends of Bevendean Downs today to collect sheep droppings on one of Bevendean's most valuable piece of south facing downland. The sheep help to graze the area but their droppings fertilize the soil which benefit weeds rather than wild flowers. Hence the need for removing it by hand. In a mutually beneficial collaboration, the community garden help with this and then we get the manure for our veggies. Although this year the Friends outweighed us in numbers. It was a beautifully sunny day sheltered from the winds.
