With the arrival of spring, the School Orchard & Environmental Science project has taken off!
So far, the Early Learning & Primary students have planted strawberries, lettuce, potatoes and courgettes – which they will water regularly, whilst they observe their growth.
This exciting practical activity is complemented with an introduction to Environmental science, which includes an intro to eco-agriculture. Amongst other topics, we will touch upon the importance of compost, organic versus inorganic fertilisers and the use of pesticides.
We will keep you posted!
