At our school we have been part of Crofting Connections since January 2012. You can find a short film of the children and teachers talking about how CC helped with our learning. Have a look at it!
Our Eco Schools work fits with the CC project, especially the Food and the Environment strand. We plant, look after and harvest our own crops which we eat at lunch or sell at Jura Community Store in the village during the summer. One thing that we have had to solve though is preventing the deer getting in to the school grounds and eating our crops!
We have decided to start an Enterprise project working with the shop to grow herbs to sell - we've planned what we'd like to grow and found out what would sell well in the shop. Now we need to think about growing, packing and marketing our herbs, as well as growing them! Lots to think about.
