Raising a Special “Green flag” award over the flower pots, stable blocks and rabbit hutches of Bardykes Farm breaks new ground for the popular Blantyre children’s nursery.
It’s the ultimate environmental accolade. The nursery set out its agricultural roots 30 years ago when Ailsa Wilkie created a spectacular experiment in agricultural diversity on the family farm.
Her daughter, Kim is delighted to have literally taken over the reins (Rosie and Ruthie, the ponies, are on the long list of four legged friends in residence at Bardykes) and galloped onwards and upwards to achieve this gold standard eco honour.
The Green Flag means parents old and new as well as the children themselves can be confident that Bardykes Farm Nursery excels in all aspects of environmental best practice – from water conservation and bee keeping through pet care and adventure to truly inspirational educational, play, learning and health & well being practice.
When it comes to the world we all live in, Green really is the new Gold.
