The Millennium Forests : School Program (2000-2002)


A tree nursery is a place where you can grow lots of trees. Starting a tree nursery can be fun and is also a great way of growing your own trees to plant in and around your school. An easy way to set up a small nursery is to collect and germinate seed in the classroom, the small trees can then be planted out onto a small patch of ground somewhere in your school (5-10 square metres should be enough). The trees need to be left in the ground for 2-3 years until they are ready to be planted in the forest or your school grounds or maybe you could even sell some to raise money for your school.

You could even set up a wild life garden in your school grounds. This will attract lots of birds, animals and creepy crawlies for you to study!
