Planting the Adrian FFA Orchard
- Anna-Marie Chamberlain, Adrian High School
- Success with Funds, Teamwork
In March we were finally able to purchase the fruit trees for the Adrian FFA Orchard! We had to wait until then as it is critical as to when you can plant fruit trees in our area. The ground was worked and prepped by a local farmer. Adrian Shop students helped to measure, mark and dig the holes for the trees. Adrian 6th grade students helped to plant the trees and watered them to give them a good start. There are five apple and five peach trees with three different varieties of each. The young trees all bloomed and have set fruit! It will be exciting to watch the trees and the fruit grow over the summer!
