Our session was on food chains and the kids made some lovely mobiles. Kirstie Mogilner asked the kids what they liked about The Garden Classroom sessions at Culpeper Garden. Charlotte liked digging. Elesha liked sowing seeds and found the different sizes “really interesting”. Mohammed liked digging, holding insects, and gardening. He might become a gardener when he grows up so that he can “grow potatoes and make chips and carrots”. Otto is “sort of” eating more vegetables now that he is growing his own. Petra liked looking at the minibeasts everywhere. Rodja liked looking in the pond. When asked where he came in the food chain Tommy stated that humans were at the end and “were the most dangerous predator that there is”.
