Year 7 Ravens Creek Farm and Cafe Tour
Gardening can be done by all, and in all sorts of different places!
To explore and investigate how large-scale gardening operates, the students studying the 'How Does Your Garden Grow?' elective headed off to Ravens Creek Farm Café to find out more.
During a guided tour by farmer and past Christian College student Hayden Finlay, the students were able to learn about the unique and sustainable ways in which their animals, including chickens, pigs and bees, were managed. They were also able to discover how their plants and vegetables were grown organically.
Along with the wealth of knowledge gained, the students were challenged to question and wonder about consumer choices when it comes to purchasing from a ‘farm gate’ as opposed to a supermarket.
