We are in the mid summer doldrums and heatwaves. The plants need a lot of watering and the youth are keen to take on this task. Took some more time to clear some scrub bush to replace with new native plants as part of Environmental Youth Alliance work to clear invasive and rewild areas of the garden and further afield. Later collected calendula seeds as part of our seed saving effort. With the heat, we stayed indoors out of the sun after lunch and built some swallow, flicker, chickadee, and mason bee homes to put up in the gardens.
