Schools and outdoor space
I wish schools would encourage more outdoor learning instead of keeping children imprisoned for a huge part of the day... is it really any wonder that some children just can't cope and become disruptive. Even schools in towns with very little green space could use the outdoor area far more effectively. It is amazing just how many diferent types of minibeasts can be found under stones and plant pots. A few large plant pots are all that is needed to grow some flowers or fruit and the odd gro bag or two would be perfect for growing herbs and salads. In fact the schools without access to green space outdoors could treat gro bags as miniature gardens and plant them up with miniature veg and edible flowers.
