This project consists of planting a variety of fruit trees, espaliers, fruit patches, living walls, beneficial insect-attracting plants to self-regulate pest control within the fruit orchard, and future considerations in sustainable practices to grow the orchard. The orchard will take place on a strip of land parallel to the school football field, offering an opportunity to use espaliered fruit trees to create a sheltered area. Our project aspires to promote green spaces and maximize the space of the area.
