The 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.
