Lots more fun in the Knockando garden this weekend, as the Junior Gardeners dug over and prepared the new garden around the classroom. Tansy and yarrow dye plants were planted, these were propagated by one of our super garden volunteers, Annette. Sunflowers and a mix of colourful flowering plants were also added to the beds. The JG’s Grandparents have been visiting with them the past few days, and Granddad helped out Aidan with some handy weeding tips.
Deep in the Spey Valley, Knockando Woolmill continues an unbroken 200 year old tradition, producing woven fabric on its historic looms.
Knockando Woolmill has always been at the heart of the local community. Listed as the 'Wauk Mill' in parish records from 1784, the mill has since maintained its traditions of spinning and weaving through generations of families.
All profits go to the Knockando Woolmill Trust to ensure the future of the Woolmill.
