At NCG we had only experienced small groups before at the Medicinal Weeds tour during Eco Festival in March, so such a big group of students was a challenge. The advantage of the visit was that Bayswater is an Enviro school, so this visit could be an exchange between “professionals” - and it was. It was very uplifting to have feedback from and interaction with students.
Our program was full of activities: sniffing lemon balm, watching chickens, we told about Yacon- special plant, there was a quiz concerning a bee balm . The students tried our famous nettle tea, and experienced hands massage with bee balm cream. At the finish they received a gift –with the sweetest plant on the earth – Stevia. Not only from students and teachers I also had very good feedback from the volunteers running NCG , so I feel like this experience can be a foundation for our future friendship and cooperation with the Bayswater Primary .
