100 fruit trees for schools and kindergartens:

The fruit tree group’s latest initiative is to introduce a community funded “Citrus in Schools” tree planting project for Auckland schools.  This project has been developed to benefit children by helping them gain a greater understanding of the importance of eating fresh fruit, and locally sourced produce.

The goal is to plant a total of 100 trees in schools and early childhood centres in the wider community by the end of July.  Schools and early childhood centres registered on our fruit trees for Auckland website will each receive up to 5 trees as well as an information pack on how to plant and care for the trees using organic methods and the benefits of eating citrus fruit.
