The first stop was a tour around Bean 14 by owner Chris Bader with a cup of coffee. Chris showed the judges the bean plants in his greenhouse which are producing their first crop. The beans for the shops are presently imported and ground on the premises for sale.We then went via Le Bigard to Dave Gorvel’s piggery where Dave gave a talk about his pigs and also spoke about the Guernsey Museum's blue plaque to Denys Corbet, poet and painter, which is situated by his house.
On the way to Petit Bot the tree planting at the ‘Plantation’ was pointed out as the Forest Scouts had planted 30 trees there courtesy of Queux Patio Plants Legacy Project.
Next stop was Petit Bot Bay. We picked up Helen Glencross, Historic Sites Curator and she spoke about the renovation and opening of the interpretation centre at Tower 13. The judges were taken inside and also viewed the flower planters at the bay which had been planted by the Forest Scout Beavers.
We continued to Les Houards Well where the judges were most impressed to see the renovation carried out by Granite Le Pelley and the floral group in this area.
