Dollar Horticultural Society

SGF Grant ReportDollar apples
We have continued our work with the children of Strathdevon Primary School this year in their vegetable garden. The children of P2/3 expressed a wish to grow their own apples and we used the grant to purchase apple trees and a blueberry bush. They were successful with all their entries in the local show and won prizes in the open competition for their potatoes, courgettes, apples and blueberries. The grant has allowed us to expand the variety of vegetables and fruit which the children can grow and to encourage further interest in growing their own produce.
