From July 3-11, seventeen UVic students from Canada, the United States, Japan, China, and Italy spent time learning and living together at the Learning Centre. We had sunshine, but also rain--lots of it--and this added a new quality to the experience. The students worked on projects including the design of an apiary, a native food forage forest, strategies for removing Scotch broom, implementing a meteorology program, designing a backcountry campsite, ramping up a native seed bank, and bringing solar education to the Learning Centre.
Congratulations to the 2016 for such accomplishment, good humour, and cooperation.
