Growing civic pride in Otley

Wildflower Meadow at the Whartons school

Posted by sstanwell on June 24, 2013

A couple of members of the group have again been back to the Whartons School where through recent talks with the school and Friends of the Earth it was decided that they would like to create two wildflower Meadows within the school grounds.  Over the past few months a plan was drawn up, seeds aquired and the land prepared.  Finally today some of the children from the school enjoyed a sunny session of sowing the seeds and stamping the ground to settle them in assisted by our members.  Otley in bloom shared the costs of the groundworks with the school PTA and will continue to monitor the site.
