The Great Garthdee Biodiversity Challenge

We hoped Miss Rennie’s Primary 4/5 Class would rise to the biodiversity treasure hunt challenge and find it fun: and of course they did not disappoint.

Getting to the big message, but where are the boys?

Ah, there they are…

So what’s the big message?

Did we have fun? We sure did!















The Big Garthdee Green Adventure

We enjoyed two visits from the Kaimhill Kids this week.  Mrs Rennie’s Class 4/5 were with us on Wednesday for a work session including veggie sowing and planting out, creating flower baskets for the Octagon and building nesting boxes and bug boxes.  Thanks to Stuart, Gill, Jacqui and Graeme.

Then on Thursday we had the first running of our new biodiversity treasure hunt with Mr Whimster and Mrs Mellis and their Primary 3 class.  I think we can say a good time was had by all – despite the glum faces during the initial briefing!

Primary School Visit 17 May

We have some more photos from today’s visit on the Galleries Page – visit via the Galleries Link above.  Thanks to Gill, Marion, Jacqui, Rona, Graeme, Phil and Stuart for all their help.

Kaimhill Come Calling

Every day we welcome visitors to Garthdee Field is special, but today was just plain perfect.


Miss Rennie’s Primary Fours were a delight from start to finish and keen to get stuck into tattie planting, seed sowing, pricking out and herb growing.

Thanks go to Marion, Gill, Jacqui and new to the GFAA team, Phil and Graeme.

It’s going to be a good year!

It’s a drooked disaster!

Our Kaimhill Primary 2 visitors got a drooking coming along the Deeside Line this afternoon and had to turn back and abandon their visit.  What a shame. :-(

However, Mrs Rough brought along Irene and Kelsey to present us with a lovely set of thank you letters and a very special present – the GFAA Site Owl.  I think you will agree it’s rather special.

We have hosted over a dozen Kaimhill Primary visits this season and all of them have been a pleasure.  We look forward to welcoming more again in the coming session.

Powering forward with Primary 3/4

Mr Murray and his Primary 3/4 Class visited yesterday and helped do a power of work, weeding, helping on the Macmillan Charity Plot paths and learning about fruit and veggies.


A big thanks to everyone!
