Green Apple Cross Education Project
SDF funding will contribute towards construction of a compost toilet and recovering a twin span polytunnel to provide an essential covered area and convenience for groups visiting the Green Apple Cross site. The former commercial nursery site is being developed as an exemplar of sustainable living, by creating a carbon neutral, self sufficient organic small holding. The site has been planned on the principles of sustainability and will include woodland coppicing, an orchard, fruit tree nursery, vegetable garden and wildlife area. In addition the site will provide local schools and communities with a valuable educational resource as an outdoor classroom. By demonstration and direct involvement the project will promote a wider understanding of sustainability through the growing of fruit, land management, water conservation and the careful use of resources. Schools will have their own plots of land to work and as well as growing fruit and vegetables be given the opportunity to grow plants that will increase the site’s biodiversity.
