I found I learned a lot about people very quickly, and would definitely use this in a classroom space.
We ended off the evening by associating the four Elements with a compass direction and listening to Craig's didgeridoo music. It was very relaxing, although when I went to bed last night, I couldn't sleep. I think the excitement of being here is finally starting to sink in, which is leading to a very active mind. It reminds me to make enough time to meditate and be calm through the excitement - for there is much to be done and much to be learned.
This morning, our group went off to The Park, Findhorn's other campus.
We learned about the local climate of the Findhorn village and Forres area, which is very cold, yet still has a surprisingly high amount of sunlight, and also has plenty of water. The soil is very sandy, which means that you must add extra fibre to it and use lots of mulch.
Despite the fact of the snow covering the soil, we managed to harvest two baskets and two sacks of potatoes and artichokes, because of the way they had been planted and looked after by chickens over the winter.
