10 schools from across the area learnt about the benefits of trees and planted orchards as part of our Schools Orchard project this year. Supported by Western Power Distribution, worked with schools in Bath & North East Somerset, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire, some of which were also part of the Natural Connections outdoor learning project.
We worked with the following schools, providing guidance, free fruit trees and helping out with planting where needed:
Cameley Primary, Bath & North East Somerset
Welton Primary, Bath & North East Somerset
Ashcombe Primary, North Somerset
Crockerne Primary, North Somerset
Westhaven Special School, North Somerset
Courtney Road Primary, South Gloucestershire
Longwell Green Primary, South Gloucestershire
King’s Forest Primary, South Gloucestershire
Parkwall Primary, South Gloucestershire
The Meadows Primary, South Gloucestershire.
A big thank you to the hundreds of children who got involved and planted a grand total of 95 fruit trees.
