Hadlow "Pip to Plate"

On Friday 28th September the Year 11 ASDAN class visited Hadlow College’s ‘Pip to Plate’ event.

The pupils learned about careers in horticulture and the science behind mass producing apples. The Malling School pupils impressed the tutor with the questions that they asked and their enthusiasm.

We also got to make apple juice and bring home lots of apples from the orchard. Pupils took part in a propagation session where they learned about the art of ‘grafting’. As a result of this we have been given some of our own apple trees to plant at school.
