Updates from Global Programme participants
We always love updates from participants on our Global Programmes and recently we’ve received some great pictures and stories from participants in Japan and Iceland.
Since arriving in Japan in April, it’s fair to say Sebastian has had an exciting and eventful first 3 months to his 12 month experience in horticulture. The programme started with a week of lectures in Tokyo, then it was on to the Japanese countryside to start a placement at an organic farm. During working hours, Sebastian has progressed well and even been featured in an agricultural newspaper. In his free time, Sebastian has been involved with various activities, from holding a lute concert, to being part of Ninja Week, a popular local festival!
Meanwhile in Iceland, Sophia has been busy working and living in beautiful northern Iceland at a family-run farm. The work is varied and covers all aspects of caring for the cows, sheep and horses at the farm. It’s also an opportunity to live with an Icelandic family and share the unique culture. Iceland is well known for its incredible landscapes, but we were amazed when we received photos of the farm beautiful surroundings!
