In May and September we lead guided walks in the local area and in July we hold our annual glow worm evening at Iron Latch Meadow EWT Reserve in Stanway. We have been involved in the Wild Food Festival held at Abbotts Hall Farm and some summers, usually in June, offer plant sales and afternoon tea at Abbotts Hall.
