DURING the summer, Rowland’s members took part in a Borders Environmental Education Services (BEES) project.
The two-week programme, based at The Haining, saw young people working together to make bows and arrows, musical instruments, jewellery, dens and mallets.
Wooden paths were also made to allow walkers round the estate to avoid muddy puddles.
Julie Smith of Rowland’s said: “They enjoyed giving something back to their community.
“They also learned survival skills, how to make a cuppa and a tasty pear and chocolate crumble over a campfire too.
“They worked hard during the project and hope to gain their John Muir Award for doing so.”
