DSCF0094Sunseed just recently welcomed Southampton University´s Environmental Science Student Society for a full week of activities, workshops and learning at Sunseed. The society contacted us last year to inquire about a week of putting their environmental science studies and ideas into practice, as well wanting a sociable week away together. We are pleased to say that the week was a great success for both us and all the gang from Southampton.
