Regenerative Agriculture in Action

Ms. Delevadova's Grade 11 Environmental Science class is currently in the midst of their sustainable agriculture unit, and this week, they had the opportunity to visit Northcote Campus' farm to gain a deeper understanding of regenerative agriculture practices. Not only did they get to learn about the farm's operations, but they also got their hands dirty by helping out with some tasks.

During their visits, the students learned about the importance of soil health and structure for sustainable agriculture. To further their knowledge, they participated in soil sampling, where they collected soil samples and will analyze them to understand the composition of the soil. Students also learned the importance of establishing strong root systems by potting tomato seedlings in addition to understanding ideal temperatures for planting certain crops into the ground. As a reward for their work, they enjoyed munching on some claytonia that has also been featured in dining hall salads this week. 
These hands-on experiences allowed the students to apply the knowledge they gained in class and see firsthand how regenerative agriculture practices can help maintain healthy ecosystems and improve the quality of the soil. By using techniques such as crop rotation, Northcote Campus' farm demonstrates how sustainable agriculture can be implemented in practice.
Ms. Delevadova's class is also exploring innovative solutions for environmental challenges and promoting sustainable living practices.
