On a lovely sunny day in March, the Seed Truck group from FIfe visited Little Assynt to help schoolchildren plant a new orchard. Culag Community Woodland Trust Project Officer Fiona Saywell and CALL’s Outreach Officer Romany Garnett, helped children from Lochinver Primary School and Stoer Primary School to plant seven heritage varieties of apples:

Coul Blush

Beauty of Moray

Scots Bridget

Eve Apple

Thorle Pippin

Tower Of Glamis

Cutler Grieve

Everyone enjoyed the storytelling. With the help of Fiona, P3s and 4s had even written their own story about each variety. These were read out to the group as they stood by each tree and  then welcomed them with percussion and a tune on the pipes from the Seed Truck’s Fergus.

There are plans to hold an annual Apple Day to celebrate re-fruiting this part of the northwest. Viv
