4 Willow had a great time , learning about food products produced by plants from the rain forest.We learnt how banana leaves with bamboo could make us a shelter, the bamboo growing over 2 metres in 9 days!! Cocoa plants would make us chocolate, papaya trees would give us another fruit to eat, with the bananas. We also were shown Annatto seeds that people from the Amazon rainforest use to cover their skin as protection from the sun.We were given seeds,and a bit of water,to make into a paste. Most of our hands turned orange!,
At the end of the day, we visited the Chinese Pagoda , where we sat quietly for a few minutes, in a position for meditation.
