Sharing nature's resources

Ranger at work

It's a small team at Parke and the rangers and gardeners often have to work closely together at this time of year.

Steve, the ranger here, who recently qualified to drive this digger, has been collecting well rotted manure from the Dartmoor Pony Heritage Trust. You'll find it piled up at two of the entrances of the walled garden, in readiness for the gardeners.

The National Trust volunteers and Bovey Community Gardeners will all benefit from this piece of work, enriching the walled garden beds for next year's crops.

Thank you to the Dartmoor Pony Heritage Trust for allowing us acccess to this wonderful resource.
