Note and the week assignment
1. We will be writing down the brief history of our farm.
To include land size, buildings, yard plots, chicken coop, ponds all physical structure on our farm
2. Imagine our team want to visit your farm and you will be away, sketch out a map for us to find our way without any guidance eg location of farm house, equipments, etc
3. Lets imagine there is a poultry beside your farm, what risk do you think your farm could be susceptible to due to inappropriate disposal of waste?
Also what risk will your farm constitute to the water ways in your environment if you are using chemicals?
We hope to see at least 2 group members write out their own assignment on the platform before the week runs out.
