Hedgerow Jelly – a study in Biodiversity and Responsible Foraging
Hedgerow Jelly Poster

Picture of Hedgerow Jelly ProduceThe Woodland Trust Scotland, in partnership with Scottish Natural Heritage and the Scottish Crofting Federation, is offering schools in Highland, Moray and Argyll & Bute the opportunity to apply for a Hedgerow Jelly pack.

The pack contains:

  • a pack of young hedgerow plants from six fruiting species for your school grounds;
  • an information sheet with planting and care instructions, introducing the hedge as a source of biodiversity and safe, responsible foraging;
  • a colourful hedgerow poster, including the recipe for Hedgerow Jelly;
  • links to online resources to highlight the range of learning opportunities of the hedge.

This is a long-term project, starting with planting a new hedge, caring for it (with minimum input) and watching it mature over the years, to provide a haven for wildlife and, in a few years, to yield a harvest of fruit for a special jelly.
