A few spits of rain did not spoil our day of interactive workshops and networking with members from other schools from our region.
Our students presented workshops on making paper planting pots and cups, then planting a baby Harakeke in the pots, (flax - which they grew from seeds collected from our plants).
Students experienced a variety of workshops throughout the day including identifying local vertebrae, using temperature lasers, rodent traps and trackers.
They also had time to meet and interact with the venues free-roaming animals - alpaca, chickens, guinea fowl, sheep, pheasants, dog, cat, ducks...
A very positive and valuable experience for us all.
