On March 10th Church Farm played host to a group of exchange students from the University of Hertfordshire and their exchange partners from the University of North Carolina, Wilmington, USA.
The group were looking to experience different things during their stay in the UK including some voluntary work in the local community.
24 willing and able students and teachers arrived in the middle of the Hertfordshire countryside to enjoy an afternoon of hedge laying, tree feeding and an exploration of the farm, including feeding lambs and herding ducks.
Stefan and Ginny, the group leaders joined in the adventure whole heartedly as did all the students and whilst the farm got its trees fed and hedge laid the students got to meet pigs, lambs, ducks and chickens.
Sid the Sheepdog got to train some new walkers for his Academy and enjoy some time in the orchard while intern Merrick got to practice his photography skills.
It was a delightful visit from our Transatlantic cousins and our University neighbours.
