Hollycombe Primary School – In Touch with Nature Project update

Hollycombe is set in the rolling Sussex downs so is already very rural but would love to plant some more trees in the back field area where the children play. The school is in discussions with a parent who is a horticulturalist about which type of trees would be best to plant. Hollycombe is also having another classroom built in the grounds where they might possibly have planted the trees so they’re just wanting to be absolutely sure where to put the trees as they wouldn’t want the roots to grow under a new building! The likelihood is that they’ll plant more blossom trees which grow well in the soil around that area and will not only attract pollinating insects, but birds and other animals too for the children to watch. A plaque will be placed with the trees dedicating them to Jane Goodall and her 60th Anniversary of arriving in Gombe.
