Fruit Tree 101 

  Students at Martin Luther King Charter School, Andrew H. Wilson Charter School and Belle Chasse Academy will learn firsthand about the process of fruit cultivation from planting to harvest, thanks to the Fruit Tree 101 educational program. In collaboration with The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation, an international, award-winning nonprofit organization dedicated to combating world hunger and improving the environment by planting fruit trees, FruitaBu (a company that makes all-natural fruit snacks) donated an orchard of 50 fruit trees and shrubs, which students and community volunteers planted in the area between the schools on Oct. 18. The orchard will serve as an "edible classroom" where students can learn about ecology, environmental issues and botany while enjoying fresh fruit. — Missy Wilkinson
