Cathe­dral is in­spi­ra­tion

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

STAFF at Peter­bor­ough Cathe­dral will to­day wel­come nine stu­dents from five African coun­tries.

The stu­dents are cur­rently tak­ing a 10-week course in agri­cul­ture and are vis­it­ing the cath­dral as part of their stud­ies.

A cathe­dral spokes­woman said: “The stu­dents are four women and five men from Tan­za­nia, Malawi, Ghana and Nige­ria.

“They are vis­it­ing the cathe­dral be­cause cen­turies ago the monas­tic com­mu­nity had to be self-sup­port­ing, and so they grew all their own veg­eta­bles, fruit and grain, as well as keep­ing an­i­mals and bees.

The stu­dents are study­ing at at Shut­tle­worth Col­lege, in Bed­ford.
