Children and friends of Knowle West Children’s Centre have been busy planting tree for national tree week. Nokia MixRadio kindly sponsored the planting of apple, pear, plum, cherry and quince trees through Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s ‘Fruitshare’ scheme which promotes the growing of trees with edible fruit in schools and Early Years settings. We plan to set up an orchard where children can watch the trees blossom, produce fruit and then harvest them to cook and eat! We a lot of work around families being able to cook fresh food on a budget, and these sustainable fruit trees will help make some delicious food!
