7 Simple Tips To Help You To Achieve Your #1000HoursOutside Challenge

This year we decided to take part in the #1000HoursOutside challenge.

The Importance of Getting Kids Gardening

Gardening, for me, has developed into a big hobby over the last 5 years or so.

Garden Ideas

We have a very small garden because whoever builds houses these days obviously assumes that no modern-day person likes to do gardening (???) So I make the most out of the small space we have by researching garden ideas, looking into what others have done and I have discovered a passion for something I never thought I would – or maybe I am just getting old?!
