Strathearn Herald - - HERALD VIEWS -

Doodle­bugs Nurs­ery in Aberuthven has been awarded a sil­ver Eco Schools award.

To achieve the award the chil­dren had to de­velop their knowl­edge and un­der­stand­ing of car­ing for the en­vi­ron­ment, plant­ing and grow­ing their own fruit and veg­eta­bles, and re­cy­cling and reusing ma­te­ri­als.

Doodle­bugs man­ager Layna Roberts said:“We are pro­vid­ing fur­ther train­ing for all staff and chil­dren with the help of Eco Schools Scot­land and the Wood­land Trust as we are now go­ing for the Green Tree Schools Award. We also plan to in­tro­duce the chil­dren to eco friendly fin­ger pup­pets to carry the mes­sage.”
