In August we planted more trees in our orchard area.
A group of our senior students were very busy for a couple of days helping move edging, digging the new plots and filling them with compost. We would like to thank our parents that also joined us digging out the weeds and getting the area ready for the fruit trees.
Because of the support from Mary, from A Place of Learning, we were able to add 4 plum trees, 4 pear trees, 5 more apple trees and 2 more fejoa trees. WE used Mossman, a seaweed moss supplement around the roots of our trees to help them retain moisture and also to help them with nutrients as they establish.
Was a really great day, with all our students joining us to help plant the trees.
