A Bit of Botany
Following from the 5 weekly sessions of 'A Bit of Botany' in September and October, we gathered some important feedback.
  1. Most of you were very local to Middleton-in-Teesdale however some had come from as far as Darlington and Gateshead.
  2. 100% who responded enjoyed the sessions.
  3. Everyone enjoyed the mixture of talking and practical and a few suggested that they would have liked even more time for the practical.
  4. 61% were already doing something new or different as a result of attending A Bit of Botany.
Thank you for completing the evaluations.

There were also additional comments including:
  • More please!
  • Perhaps more experienced members could contribute to leading sessions in future, to share the load?
  • I am looking forward to Spring!
  • I would love to do more and on different subjects as well like fungi for instance.
  • I thoroughly enjoyed these classes. They have enhanced my understanding and basic botany skills. Lizzie's passion as a teacher as well as sharing the interest in botany with other participants made this class the highlight of my week.
  • Just a great set of sessions with a good bunch of people.
More Please!
In answer to the More please! and similar comments, Lizzie Maddison has created a useful Leaf Structure and Function information sheet and an Appendix. This includes a glossary and pictures and it is hoped that it will keep you interested as we look forward to Spring.

These documents can also be downloaded by clicking on the images below and will be available on our website in the new year.
