M1 Eco Friendly Country Fayre

As part of the Global Citizenship Program and the M1 Engaging with the Environment unit,  students from M1 organised a small Eco-Friendly Country Fayre at a local farm, Fundacion Alma in Tesorillo on Friday, the 9th June 2017.

The students prepared their stalls using natural resources found on the farm: This included wooden pallets, cane and straw.  The items that they produced and sold were all made from fruit planted and grown at the farm.

Some of the items sold included bird feeders made from orange peel, bath bombs, body scrubs, mojitos (virgin of course!), lemonade, strawberries dipped in chocolate and lavender scented drawer pillows.

The event was well attended by parents and guardians of M1 students. Both teachers and parents were delighted with the outcome of the event which proved to be a huge success raising 298.77 Euros for the Kindred Project and the M1 school garden project.

Garden Project

The aim of the M1 school garden project links well to this  GCP project, as it teaches the students about environmental sustainability. The aim is to take what they have learned from the farm and create something in the school garden that next years M1 students can use to sustain this ongoing project. For example by planting their own fruit and vegetables at school, which can be grown and picked to create natural products again next year.

Mindfulness

Set in the farms beautiful and peaceful surroundings, the students have been able to practice mindfulness and consider the impact we as individuals have on our local environment, learn about environmental sustainability and engage in their “Creativity Challenge!”
Well done to all of the students involved in the Country Fayre, and to Isobel and Sofia at the farm for supporting the students throughout this process!

Please take time to look at the website for the farm to see what amazing things they offer. There may be something of interest for you that you may also wish to visit the farm this summer!
