15th February, 2019: Beyond the Academy visit

Today I met again with Victoria to discuss the future of the garden, and we also met with the Head Teacher who signed off on the project. I also brought fourth year geographers with me, who were doing their “Beyond the Academy Project” on Boclair Academy’s school garden. Their project was amazing (all fourth-year geographers do an outreach-based project), and they spent weeks researching and designing the best practices for a community-facing school garden. You’ll see the poster they designed below – “Growing Green Futures.” Thanks to my amazing students, who ended up getting a well-deserved A for their project!
