LCA1 Horticulture Trip

LCA1 had a very busy today. As part of their Horticulture studies, the class went on a trip to Emly Tidy towns, There they met Dennis Heffernan who gave the fascinated students a great talk on Biodiversity.

Next, the class accompanied by Mr. Ryan and Ms. Ring then went to the Knockenrawley organic garden in Tipperary town and were treated to an excellent educational tour by Timmy White. He showed the group how to compost and grow organic fruit and vegetables, as well an many other tips to improve their green fingers.
The final leg of the journey was a call to Joe’s Garden Centre in Tipperary Town. Joe showed the group how to plant a Christmas flower basket, as well as all the plants and trees that the centre sells.

Many thanks to Mr. Ryan, Ms. Faust and Ms. Ring for all their work organising this excellent trip.
