Growing an Orchard
An orchard is the perfect school grounds or garden project. You need as few as five trees and very little space, even along a wall will do! Low-cost and easy to grow, fruit trees can enrich learning, encourage wildlife and enhance your grounds. Orchards provide a high quality teaching resource which gets pupils excited about learning. Even if you don't have much space at all, you can still grow miniature fruit trees which will be happy in pots in warm, sheltered spaces. Below are several recources which we've collected to help you grow your own orchard.
