Today was our first day of homesteading, we split into groups and took on different tasks. Group 1 went cooking, group 2 went to look at gardening and group 3 went and learnt about animal care as we are looking after the chickens this term. We had a lovely time, made some yummy soup and looked at the space we have allocated for gardening (it is a good space, we measured it up for our planning). The other group met with Lucas and were shown what the chickens need to be fed and how to clean the coop out. Lastly the gardening group got started on our planters, digging the dead things and re potting the living things for later. It was a wonderful morning.
