SÜLZLE apprentice project: Regional meadow orchard
With the project of the regional meadow orchard, the apprentices at SÜLZLE contribute to the topic of sustainability. On more than 1,800 m² of open space, they have set themselves the task of planting a total of 24 apple trees of different kinds to preserve old varieties of litter fruit. In addition, this will create living and retreating spaces for various animals such as insects and birds.
In consultation with the local district office, the plot of land to be planted was first measured and the best places for the trees were chosen. Then, in cooperation with the youth teams of TSG Balingen, our apprentices dug holes for the tree seedlings and planted them in the prepared places on the following day.
The following tasks, which are also taken over by the SÜLZLE apprentices, include the constant care of the trees and the entire property as well as the harvesting and processing of the fruits.
