The Duchess of Cornwall Visits Oasis Farm
The Duchess of Cornwall paid a visit to Oasis Farm in Waterloo, London this morning, an urban farm project developed by her patronage, Jamie’s Farm.
Camilla was shown around the city farm by local schoolchildren, who described to her their herb gardens made out of plastic drink bottles and prepared salads made of produce from the garden. “Are any of you into food or cooking? Will you try and use this?” the Duchess asked the children before heading over to the petting zoo section of the farm where a newborn piglet did not like being put on display.
“Oh you poor thing, you’re not very happy are you?” she said patting its head as the piglet squealed loudly.
Later on, the Duchess popped over to the Duke of York Square where she unveiled an elephant sculpture dedicated to her late brother, conservationist Mark Shand. As president of the conservation charity Mr Shand set up, The Elephant Family, Camilla was joined by 50 schoolchildren for the unveiling of Tara the Elephant.
Camilla also posed for photographs in a brightly coloured rickshaw, which will be travelling around the streets of London as part of the Travels to my Elephant campaign to raise awareness for the plight of the creature.Filed under The United Kingdom
