Free fruit trees for Scottish Schools!
WE HAVE HAD A LARGE NUMBER OF APPLICATIONS IN THE LAST FEW DAYS AND THIS SCHEME IS NOW CLOSED.
We will let applicants know if they have been successful or not by 18th January.
Free school orchard booklet
Hundreds of schools across the UK have discovered that a school orchard can be an effective and practical way of enriching learning and school life in many ways. This booklet distils what we’ve learned from supporting the creation of school orchards in over 70 primary and secondary schools across England, Scotland and Wales. The ideas you’ll find in the booklet are school-tested, practical and inexpensive. Our hope is that it will inspire you to get going and create your own school orchard and give you the practical guidance that you need to make it a success.
All schools and nurseries that apply for free fruit trees will receive a free copy of the school orchard booklet. If you are not applying for the free trees but would still like a booklet, please send an A4 SAE for £1.20 to:
Grounds for Learning, c/o KSB, Wallace House, 17-21 Maxwell Place, Stirling. FK8 1JU
You can also download a copy of the orchard booklet here.
