Apple Orchards on School Grounds

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.

Crestwood Elementary, Madison recieved a Lowe's grant for an orchard 

Granton FFA has an orchard, and there are others across the state.

If anyone else has an orchard or ideas on how to create one please post.
