Pensans School Visits

On Tuesdays 26th April and 3rd May, Bosavern Community Farm played host to three groups of young students from Pensans School in Penzance. Each group consisted of about twenty students, which we split into three teams, and each team enjoyed three activities:-
- Visiting our field of free-range chickens and collecting eggs;
- Making compost and wildflower seedballs;
- Sowing pumpkin seeds and tasting different vegetables in the polytunnels.
Each visit lasted two hours, after which the students returned to school and helped prepare then eat soup cooked from vegetables grown on the farm.

Feedback from Pensans School has been excellent - all the students enjoyed their visit, and we enjoyed hosting them too. We'd like to thank our volunteers for helping with the visits, the school for coming, and teachers and parents for allowing us to use these photos.
