Orchard Planting at Tollgate Primary School

With the help of the Lottery funded Orchards East project which has given us 36 wonderful heritage fruit trees we were able to get to work at Tollgate Primary School in December.

Our second project at Tollgate Primary, the children thoroughly enjoyed planting the trees and worked very hard to ensure that this was an orchard to be proud of. Indeed, they showed exceptional committment – as did the staff!

Tollgate Primary remains one of our most committed schools in the area and it is a pleasure to help grow food and conserve wildlife on these gorgeous grounds and with such a supportive group of teachers.

Our next project – number 3 on this site – will involve renovating the wildlife pond and putting in hedgehog boxes. Stay tuned!

If you’d like to donate to Greener Growth please visit the donation page and give what you can.

Meantime, we’ll leave you with some photos of the children’s activities from December.
