A total of 150 primary schools across the country have received help to create traditional orchards in their grounds. The Fruit-Full Schools programme, developed by Learning through Landscapes, aims to support environmental sustainability and locally grown produce.



So far it has enabled schools to graft 1,500 local heritage apple trees that are in risk of dying out. Now each of the 50 secondary schools participating are offering their trees to primary schools to increase the number of traditional orchards.



The secondary pupils are also giving lessons and advice in the planting and maintenance of the new apple orchards. Pictured are pupils from Brampton Manor School in London working with pupils from neighbouring Brampton Primary School.
