Year 9 Geography students have been studying biomes and food security. The students travelled to a local farm to look at that aspect of their study. A report follows:
We went to “Gleneden” on a Year 9 Geography excursion. The trip to “Gleneden” involved our class finding out how Mr Morris makes a living from sustainable farming. We learnt ways to farm without having to turn the key on a machine. He uses a farming technique called “Multi species rotational grazing.” This allows the land he farms to be replenished for use now, and in the distant future. This form of farming allows him to put valuable nutrients back into the soil, making his food taste better. We also had the opportunity to cook our own meal in the camp ovens provided at “Gleneden”, which allowed for the feeling of living more simply.
