Cranberry Academy school Alsager are committed to developing outdoor learning opportunities for all our children. We have an established wood within the school grounds, where the children access Forest school learning experiences. The PTFA have recently bought us a poly tunne,l in which we are already growing 100 onions and peas. We paln to plant early potatoes in February! Cranberry Academy also took part in the RHS 'Get your grown up growing week'. Parents came in to help the children to build raised beds, make scarecrows, insect houses, wind chimes and recycled planters. We would like to develop our outdoor area by planting an orchard. It is important that children learn where food comes from, how and why fruit and vegetables grow, how and when to harvest crops, and how to store, cook or preserve produce. Fruit share is a fantastic opportunuty to provide this for our children.

We need you to help us raise £130 which will enable our school to have a pack of 10 fruit trees, which we can plant in our school grounds and teach all our pupils the importance of growing our own produce.

It only takes 13 people to pledge on £10 and recieve a discount on a Woodland Trust membership to get us to our target and recieve trees to plant in the school. We can do this!

We believe this project is so beneficial to all our pupils, we will be able to educate on sustainable and local produce and by planting our own trees we will be able to do this with our very own produce. Just one pack will provide us with 10 fruit trees including four apples, two pear, two plum, one quince and one medlar. All trees are kindly donated by Otter Farm. The fruit trees are two years old and will fruit next year.

Our campaign is supported by Abel and Cole, The Woodland Trust and River Cottage, who are both kindly donating some amazing rewards.

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall said: “I find the idea that the next generation could be growing more fruit, eating more fruit and cooking their fruit in a much more creative way incredibly exciting. I want to do what I can to make that happen.”

With your help we can get all our pupils involved with a great project and show them how much benefit 20 trees can make to our school. We can use the fruit in our canteen and allow children to eat it during the school day. This also promotes healthy eating.
Please support us and help our school start a sustainable project with real educational benefit. All trees are provided by Otter Farm. 

Thank You

If we exceed our target, we will use all the extra funds for enviromental projects going on at the school, minus the 5% crowdfunder admin fee.
