Win One of Three Bat Conservation Trust
Did you know that one bat can eat up to 3,000 insects in a night? That’s why British watercress farmers across Hampshire and Dorset are working alongside the Bat Conservation Trust to provide a habitat for the local bat population, putting up bat boxes to encourage these creatures to live in the trees growing around the watercress beds, which in turn enables them to grow their crops in as environmentally friendly a way as possible.
To celebrate this link we are giving three lucky people the chance to win a year’s family membership to the Bat Conservation Trust. You and your family can learn all there is to know about the different species of bats in the UK and how the Trust is working hard to protect their numbers from declining.
It’s no surprise that the farmers work so hard to protect watercress; gram for gram it contains more vitamin C than oranges, more calcium than milk and more iron than spinach. Research also suggests that it’s a key player in the fight against cancer http://watercress.co.uk/healthy-stuff/original-superfood/. So why not take the opportunity to sit your family down in front of a delicious and nutritious meal packed with watercress and teach them all about the incredible partnership that bought the food to their plate.
