Whilst having some time on our hands, before the majority of students return to school next week, three members of staff at Parkside Secondary School, planted our delivery of orchard trees. We planted some outside the school gates to create a community orchard. We had a bit of fun deciding to plant them in the order of the children’s book, ‘Each Peach (Apple actually), Pear, Plum’ especially as one of our volunteers manages the school library. We also amused ourselves planting the fruiting hedgerow trees in order of ‘sloe, sloe, quick(thorn), quick, sloe….’
