BCI Intern, Michelle Tiatia, decided to treat the 6th and 7th grade classes at the BCI Academy to a fun, yet education end of school field trip.
The classes went to Redfox Greenhouse which is one of the world’s leaders in what they do – which is grow flower clippings to export overseas. This agricultural project is managed by a Christian South African family who kindly opened up their home and work place for our kids to see what kind of process it takes for plants to be grown to export quality. After a one hour tour of the greenhouses, which are on a 48 acre piece of land, the children got to play soccer, eat lunch and go for a swim in the pool at the house belonging to the manager.
The kids and teachers were all blown away by this experience. None of them had been exposed to this kind of project or even the kind of house that the manager lives in. It expanded their horizons and hopefully got them thinking outside the box about the possibilities life has to offer and about the abundance God has in store for them. All of them have asked when they can go back again! Hopefully we will get to take them back some time in the future. A great time was had by all – even our hosts.
