Heathlands School for Deaf Children

by heathlands in St Albans

We did it
On 6th January 2014 we successfully raised £70 with 1 supporters in 49 days

At Heathlands School for Deaf Children class 8M have been learning about planting and growing. We have been involved in a reforestation project at Heartwood Forest, visited Kew Gardens, grown a variety of plants from seed and experienced fruit picking as well cooking. We are now looking to raise £70.00 for the Fruitshare Project. This project will provide an invaluable experiential learning opportunity that is enjoyable, meaningful, substantial and long term. Please support us, our school and our learning by making a contribution. Thank you from all of us in 8M.

At Heathlands School for Deaf Children class 8M have been learning about planting and growing.

We have been involved in a reforestation project at Heartwood Forest, visited Kew Gardens, grown a variety of plants from seed and experienced fruit picking as well cooking. Now we want to get involved in the Fruit Share Project and grow our own produce. 

This project will provide an invaluable experiential learning opportunity that is enjoyable, meaningful, substantial and long term.

We need you to help us raise £70 which will enable our school to have a pack of five fruit trees - two apples, one pear, one plum and one quince. 

It only takes seven people to pledge £10.00 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!

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 five 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 the 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.
