Digging Pit

Gaining an understanding of what earth is, how it's made and why it is so important to look after it are just some of the issues that can be discussed whilst children are busy excavating, examining and discovering in our Digging Pit.

The 4 metre diameter, low-level, Superadobe retaining wall surrounds a mixture of organic topsoil and leaf mould filled to a depth of 16 inches.  An optional, easy to manage cover ensures that children can explore the earthy world of mini-beast wildlife without the risk of excavating unhelpful contributions from neighbouring cats or foxes.
