In the first week we covered Ecology, Holistic Management, Nuts and Bolts, (Scratching the surface of) Soil Science, Blogging, and Animal Anatomy! A theme we come back to again and again is that diversity is key, observation and questioning are skills of great importance, and that a holistic view of the whole picture is the most successful angle for decision making.
Students are working and learning with us to plant out our wholesale crops, build shelter for our pastured poultry operation, market the school and produce, and generate healthy living systems. Their input and creativity is fueling the further growth and development here, their imprint will be seen and felt for years to come! How exciting to have so many minds and hands participating in the start up of the Grange Farm School.
