Study visit to Vernis-Taberner

On 20th March the first year, medium-level farming students visited the site of the John Deere concessionary in Gurb, the company Vernis- Taberner. We were well-looked after by Lluís Vernis who showed us around the facilities and explained all about managing sales, repairing machinery and residue recycling. Afterwards a former Quintanes student told us all about the latest developments in the world of tractors, including their maintenance and attempts to reduce their particle emissions. It was an excellent visit which we would like to thank the company for.

On Thursday 19th March the second year, medium-level gardening students visited the Ribas Fitosanitaris facilities in Matarò. This company has been involved in agriculture since 1895. Since 1965 it has also included plant growing products in its set-up. On the visit we saw different types of lawn maintenance machines and the varieties of treatment they use. We also learned how their machines worked and different maintenance methods, as well as about laws related to commercial use.

London Trip

On 29th January the AGS course left for their annual trip to London. The seven students and tutor left from Barcelona and arrived in the UK capital in time to complete the first activity in pairs, which involved going to a particular part of London and finding out information there. Over three days they visited the Cutty Sark and Royal Observatory in Greenwich, Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Camden and took a boat trip along the river Thames. They also enjoyed an English breakfast and visited typical pubs and restaurants. Everybody enjoyed the trip, practised their English and had a break from the intensive course which culminates with the official exam in May. In the photo you can see the students standing on either side of the Meridian Line in Greenwich.

Study visit to the Cusachs Foresty site

On 11th December the first year, medium level forestry students visited the Cusachs Foresty business. It was a rewarding, full day in which we saw a great deal of the machinery used in this field. Cusachs is a family-run company that has been in operation for many years. It was also a great chance for our students to see first-hand how a forestry-orientated business is run. We learnt a great deal about the practical side of the company's operations and Sergi gave us an excellent visit in which we learnt many things. Many thanks.
