We've created our own water friendly gardens at Grafham Water Visitors centre.  

See the wild life garden containing a mixture of plants, fruit trees, bug homes and willow sculptures. The area has been created in partnership with LEAP. (An organisation who work with young adults with learning difficulties and disabilities based at Huntingdon Regional College)  

A showcase garden has also been created, designed by a student from Huntingdon regional college, to stimulate and encourage calm and peaceful space using plants that require little water. Learn about all the drought tolerant plants that can be used to create a water and wildlife friendly garden and see how to make bug hotels and hedgehog homes.
