Children left the classroom to get hands on during a day long visit to the Lochaber Rural Education Trust.

The Trust gives youngsters the opportunity to find out about many aspects of rural life through a number of ‘hands on’ projects, from planting to preparing and cooking fresh foods to using natural materials in various crafts and above all having fun while learning.
One of the Trust’s highlights for children is its ‘Seed to Supper’ project where under expert guidance the youngsters prepare the ground in large outdoor planters, (which are also designed for access by wheelchair users), sow various vegetable seeds and on each return visit help cultivate them.
This year the children planted the seeds, but just as they started to grow, COVID-19 restrictions came into force, which closed schools and stopped their visits to the Trust.
An Clachan at Lochaber Rural Complex was packed last Saturday with people attending the Strawberry Tea organised by Lochaber Rural Education Trust.
Many people enjoyed the sunshine, activities and great home baking at the Lochaber Rural Education Trust open day on Saturday.
