Fruit Trees Planting in the School Garden

Fruit Trees Planting in the School Garden Have you heard the term food forest? It is a low maintenance perennial garden that mimics natural forest with a variety of plants growing at different levels.

Have you heard the term food forest? It is a low maintenance perennial garden that mimics natural forest with a variety of plants growing at different levels.

We have this concept in mind as we are establishing a new space for teaching and learning in the school yard as we, both students and teachers, feel that we want more teaching and learning happen outdoors, with connections to real-life settings and nature. 

This autumn we have started with the plants that take the longest to grow - fruit trees. We have chosen several varieties of apples, pears and plums and planted them with help of Year 8 and 10 students. During winter we will work on further planning of the space and we will carry on with more work in the spring.
