On y va! : La Ferme Pédagogique
On a beautiful Wednesday afternoon, session 2 Toulousers headed to a farm outside Toulouse to check out that rural life! Taking a metro, a bus, and our own two legs, we arrived at La Ferme Cinquante, an educational farm. Check it out here! With the goal in mind of educating the public about how and why farmers sustain their agriculture and livestock, Toulousers split into two different groups to take a private tour of the shared gardens, and a self-led tour of the livestock. I bet you can guess which one was cuter (as much as I love fresh produce, there is something about a donkey that is just ADORABLE!).
After our visit of the animals, we got to see the gardens, full of fruits and vegetables and flowers!
Finally, we planted seeds (green bean seeds to be exact!) in biodegradable pots to offer to our host families as tokens of our appreciation, as well as the importance of being self-sufficient and bio!
Although it was a hot one, it was a fun day in the sun with animals and biodiversity! Heading back to the Institut Catholique for our pique nique after having made new animal and plant friends, the rest of the day was in class working on our last week's project!
Tomorrow we have an activity at Toulouse Plage or a swimming pool, and then it is our farewell party! It will be hard to say goodbye, but man what a great time we have had so far!
