The wonders of modern technology enabled us to deliver our first online workshop to twenty students – 10 from Churston Ferrers school in Devon, UK, and 10 from King’s Kids in Nairobi, Kenya – all learning in the same classroom. Aged 10-15, the students have spent 5 weeks learning about soil and how we can invite it back into our lives through creative writing and poetry. It has been wonderful to see how their interest has been piqued and how they have all engaged with soil over the weeks. In the fourth session, each of the children was given a soil character and they collaborated on the scripts for two mini audio dramas which you can find on our YouTube Channel here:
