This initial 10 week course began with the group thinking about and discussing what we wanted to achieve both individually and as a group during the course.
For example, some of the things included:
- Growing tomatoes
- Learning something new
- Making new friends
- Growing pink flowers
Everyone wrote their ideas onto paper leaves and added them to the wishing tree which is in the centre. This will be revisited throughout the course so we can see how far we have come.
We’ve then tried growing carrot tops in water to see how the growing conditions were inside the centre – with mixed results!
- and from this we’ve learnt how important it was to keep water levels topped up in the centre as it is warm and things will dry out quickly, even in winter.
