Garden elective begins!

Catherine and Victoria oversee the cool new garden guides!

Another cold and wet Friday in Glasgow saw the gardening elective get underway at Boclair Academy. As an introductory session, it was an opportunity for the young people to meet Cheryl, Ian and Catherine, hear about the International Green Academy and check out their new garden guides! They also learned a bit about eco-anxiety and filled in the questionnaire we piloted last week.

Despite some concerns about having to deal with worms and dirt, lots of the young people said that learning to grow food was their main goal for the elective. They won’t have to wait long to get growing, as next week we’ll be starting off our peas indoors!
