Planting in Slessor Gardens
Abigail Bannister, Chelsea Stephens and Sharon Bergerson are 3 S6 pupils at Grove Academy who joined the community planting event in Slessor Gardens on Mon 27th June between 6 - 8pm. The opening of the waterfront green space is fast approaching and as part of that, Dundee Urban Orchard invited its partners to plant an orchard of 6 apples trees with accompanying soft fruit and herbs in one of the green spaces that surround the central green.
This was a wonderful opportunity to integrate more biodiversity planting into the Waterfront and to be a part of making this happen. The three seniors took this opportunity and literally got their hands in the soil helping to dig in topsoil and compost followed by planting out raspberry canes and small herbs.
