We have grand plans to have a big orchard where we grow lots of different fruit in school. We have started with 4 trees donated by Dobbies. We have 2 different types of Apple tree, a Pear and a Plum. Green Team set about planting them. WIldlifeKate had dug the holes as the soil is very hard and rocky.

We put a pipe down inside the hole as this lets us water the trees straight down into their roots. We then packed the trees around with compost and soil and pressed it down hard, making sure they were nice and secure.

We were proud to plant these trees, knowing that over the coming decades, they will continue to grow and produce fruit for generations of future MDJS pupils!Screen Shot 2015-06-02 at 11.22.01 Screen Shot 2015-06-02 at 11.22.11 Screen Shot 2015-06-02 at 11.22.17 Screen Shot 2015-06-02 at 11.22.34 Screen Shot 2015-06-02 at 11.22.42 Screen Shot 2015-06-02 at 11.22.50
