How much could we reduce our rates bill if every grass verge were seeded with wildflowers and councils simply stopped using pesticides! How much more could we spend on education if our schools didn’t need fossil fuels? How would our children’s health be impacted if wildflower roofs filtered our polluted air? How would Autism, Anxiety and Allergies be impacted if we didn’t use pesticides? #designsmart #protectourchildren

Our wee lambs fully weaned rejoining their cousins 😁 A big thanks to our friend Joe for letting us look after the lambs, the children have benefited so much from bottle feeding the lambs every day. Not only does this develop oxytocin as the children bond with the lambs and dopamine as they recognise their achievement, they are also exposed to antigens that are vital for the learning immune system.
