Eden Project & Riverford Farm

Eden Project & Riverford Farm

The main purpose of this Environmental project week, at the Eden Project and Riverford Farm, was to gain a deeper understanding of ecology, especially in relation to organic farming. The students also visited Transition Town Totnes and learned about Schumacher's ideas behind Small is Beautiful (essentially Act Locally, Think Globally).

The students learned much about how we need to think about transitioning to the future in more sustainable ways, especially in relation to the way we grow our food and organise our economic structures. On a more practical level, they learned much about organic farming and have new ideas about what can be implemented here at the college, especially down in the valley.
