Over the past 14 years we have helped to plant over 500 school and community orchards. We can assist schools and community groups to develop their orchard projects, help direct people to funding, and in some cases can help to supply trees via supporters and labour via our volunteers.
Helping children grow...
School orchards have proved really popular - and we have worked with hundreds of Scottish Schools and thousands of pupils. There are various good things about school orchards - but one of the best things is how well the cycle of fruit growing fits with the school year. You plant in late autumn to spring, enjoy blossom, and come back from holidays in time for the harvest. It’s perfect for schools.
