Our pond has been planted with Acorus calamus, Nymphaea “Albatros” and Butomus umbellatus. These plants are some of the first flowering plants on Earth. They are the start of our timeline of the evolution of flowers going back 140 million years.
Today New Leaf celebrated a successful summer of mentoring young people with an end-of-season party. Trustees, backers, alumni, local residents, long-time friends, and volunteers mingled over coca-cola, coffee and excellent BBQ-fare. It was an incredibly successful day – the very nature of New Leaf means that friends pop-in when they are about, and do some volunteering at different times – and some volunteering is done in peoples’ studies (web-design, putting together proposals for funding) – so it was fantastic for all these people to meet each other – in some cases for the first time.
