Pacific School Orchard Planting Day

We planted 7 apple trees and 1 persimmon tree. 3 citrus and an avocado tree are on the way. This whole school project involved Tk/K, 1/2, 5/6, and IS classes. 3/4 will be planting the citrus, installing irrigation, and creating interpretive signs in the weeks to come.

We will be eating fresh citrus next year. Apples, persimmons, and avocados will come on in the years to come. Yum!

Thanks to a grant from the California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom (CFAITC) and California Certified Organic Farmers for making this project a reality!
