Sunflower Trail: Children from St Mark’s primary school and volunteers from Emmanuel Baptist Church in Swanage bagged up 150 sunflowers as part of The Arts Development Company’s work with Durlston Country Park. The sunflower bags have been placed along the path from Herston to Durlston to guide people along the 1.5-mile route, which is hard to follow in places.
‘The sunflowers will bring a bright and warm feeling to passers-by who are trying to find their way,’ said Macy, aged 11.
The flowers were all grown from seeds planted earlier in the year by every child at St Mark’s and people in the Herston area. The soil was donated by Eco Sustainable Solutions of Christchurch and the jute coffee sacks were given by coffee companies from Lincoln and Masteroast.
