5th Year Home Economics Visit Airfield Farm

On Friday last Ms Mackey and Ms Lalor’s 5th year Home Economics class visited Airfield Farm for their Food and Nutrition Education Day. It was a really enjoyable day. We learned all about organic farming and how to cultivate your own vegetables. We saw free range chickens and had a talk from the Nutrition Students in UCD. We even sampled Jersey milk from the cow!!. The highlight of the day was the demonstration by Higgins butchers on the different cuts of pig meat. Airfield farm also offers free entry to all students doing their leaving cert as a means to distress. Take up their offer and enjoy a great afternoon at Airfield.
