Starting in the Autumn term the Land Services group has been attending Beyond Boundaries, Commondale and Botton farms, Botton Village, one day each week, as part of a transitions programme.
These sessions have included work on a wide range of activities at both venues.
At Beyond Boundaries they have experienced at some animal care activities, farm property maintenance and they have even had a chance to participate in an archaeological dig.
At Botton they have been working with large animals including sheep, pigs and cows. The activities have included moving, feeding and mucking out. They have also experienced harvesting vegetables, including potatoes and carrots. Other duties have included maintenance of buildings and fences.
All of the students involved have participated fully in the activities asked of them and look forward to going each week.
