Ms Colum’s Ty, 5th Year Agricultural Science and 1st Year Science classes had a very informative visit to the community Garden recently. The group learned about how food is grown at the site in polytunnels and also learned about the extensive work that is being done to encourage biodiversity around our town. They also got a chance to pick some blackberries to make jam in Home Ec class!! Thanks to kay Maguire for facilitating the visit.
The Tys also had a very informative talk and demonstration from local beekeeper, PJ McLoughlin, where the students leaned about the importance of bees in local ecosystems, as well as some of the practicalities involved in keeping bees. A really informative talk.
