Fruit Tree Planting at Chêne-Bleu High School

Members of the Green Project recently celebrated the planting of twenty fruit trees on the grounds of Chêne-Bleu High School.

At the beginning of November, three classes from Chêne-Bleu High School and members of the Green Project participated in the planting of plum, pear, pawpaw and apple trees.

The addition of this feeder forest was made possible by a grant from Tree Canada that provides grants and technical and logistical support to encourage the setting up of “green infrastructure” in our communities.

Since its creation, the Green Project has created twenty raised plots, two large open-air cultivation spaces and, now, a nourishing forest.

The project aims to enable children and teens to learn how to grow fruits and vegetables.

About the Green Project

The Green Project is an urban agriculture initiative set up by the Town of Pincourt, in collaboration with Chêne-Bleu High School.

The Green Project was created to allow all students at the school to learn how to grow fruits and vegetables by the end of their high school years. It is an entrepreneurial project that develops relationships with several local entrepreneurs in the region.
