Geography students can study the agricultural methods in their classroom, but there is nothing like experiencing the real world, outside our windows.
Our GCSE and AS level students were offered a fantastic opportunity to visit an multinational company, G´s Espana, and learn about the whole agricultural process from the seed to harvesting. The students had a practical introduction to how the seeds were prepared, germinated, seedlings produced in the polytunnels, and finally the planting and harvesting. We got to plant our own broccoli, lettuce or celery and get to taste the final product!
Murcia really is a world leader in providing food to two continents, and we got to understand just what we had passed driving to and from the school. Thank you to everyone for a fantastic experience.
