Day 7 – 30 Days Wild

Wildlife Gardening 07/06/16 I thought it would be a good idea to combine a 30 Days Wild activity, with the BBC's Do Something Great campaign!  My parents needed some Broom planting, so I used this opportunity to my advantage - for a quick video: https://youtube.com/watch?v=GKOsTrAlrA8 Thanks. 🙂
