Latymer School visit

It was a great pleasure to welcome a group of students from London's Latymer School back to the farm for the second year running. This year they brought 25 pupils for a full day of educational activities, including:-
- Learning about our black bees, and why pollinators are so important in the food chain and nature.
- Building and planting square-metre wildflower gardens.
- Growing fruit and vegetables in polytunnels and outdoors.
- Harvesting vegetables and preparing them for sale.
- Sowing seeds and potting-on seedlings.
- The importance of community, wildlife, and organics in agriculture.
- How to care for free-range laying hens.
There was also time to eat Cornish pasties and cake, and to play frisbee in our camping field.

Many thanks to the school (pupils and teachers) for revisiting the farm, and also to our local and international volunteers who ensured the day went well. We hope to see you again in 2019!
