Our young students have had a great time – planting their trees in our orchard and making some fabulous colourful signs to let everyone one know what the different types of trees are. Around the trees we are starting to introduce some wildflowers hoping that we will help to increase the biodiversity of our site and bring in the pollinators we need when our trees are blossomimg. We have also began mowing paths through the long grass so that others can enjoy the orchard too.
One of the best things the students love is the idea that even after they have left the college they will be able to return over the years and see their trees again!
