Insect Killer Lamp clip off and discard the leaf from the bud that you are about to remove. When you remove the leaf, leave the stem attached to the bud stick, just remove the leaf itself.

The stem makes a nice little handle to hold on to. To remove the bud from the bud stick just cut into the bark and under the bud, it should pop off easily.

Again, dont cut into the cambium tissue, but make sure you are under the bark so you dont damage the bud.

Along with the bud you will have a small piece of bark shaped like a tiny banana peel, and the stem from the leaf.

There are plenty of quick and easy projects that the children can get involved in.

The projects will teach them about nutrition, nature, recycling and organic gardening. That's a good outcome!

The no dig garden is a particularly good project for children because the garden can be built and planted in just a couple of Plastic Fence hours.
