There are other autumnal activities on offer too, such as our leaf collection drive and take away mammal house kits. We’ll also be harvesting our seasonal produce from the kitchen garden. You could find vegetables and herbs grown in the Red House garden for sale by donation, or even in your lunch from the Scullery café.
