Horizon means....? As far as you can see! Further than you can see! All you can dream! It’s brighter there.
We (Class 6, teachers Sammy, Steven & myself) visited Baraka Agricultural Colllege to learn about agricultural innovations that will help our school shamba grow well.
Students attended a bee-keeping session. The Rift Valley has long been home to honey-gatherers and innovative bee-hive construction. The instructor encouraged everyone, and very much encouraged women and youth, to go into the bee-keeping profession.
Students observed how to protect seedlings from hot sun.
…and made lists of their favourite indigenous trees.
Students asked to be photographed beside this perfect box-hedge.
Loved the bouncy grass.
Sammy, Veronica and Class 6 look to the horizon. It was a great day.
Special thanks to Baraka Principal, Mr Francis Kumau for welcoming our group.
