With the new movement of farm to school, healthy lunches, and sustainability we have seen an increase in school orchards. This is a fun development and teaches patience waiting for them to fruit, rewards for that patience, horticultral skills, though a few to many green apples could cause an upset stomache, it can lead to a fantastic foods lesson in applesause production or apple pies.
