Kitty: “To start off we walked around the woods talking about the theory side of nature. After walking we headed back and watched the Druid ceremony [for the dedication of the new Dragon Garden]. Once that was finished there was a storytelling about the legendary dragon that lived [in the nearby village of Wherwell] and there was lunch and cake. To finish the day we planted wildflowers around the Dragon Garden.”
The session finished earlier than usual as there was a special community event going on, which most of the group stayed to attend: the celebration of the Dragon Garden, the new landscaped garden that Andover Trees volunteers have been creating in Harmony Woods. It included a Druid ceremony, storytelling of a local dragon legend, and wildflower planting. You can read about the event here: www.andovertrees.org.uk/news-list/2023/10/dragon-garden-dedication.
