An easy, fun and cheap project to do at this time of year is to set up a tree nursery. In Ireland, we have many native trees to plant seeds from. An added bonus at the completion of this project is that any surplus trees can be sold at one of your school fundraiser days to raise money for the next garden project.

Autumn is a great time to bring children out for a nature walk in search of seeds such as acorns and conkers. \ Ciara O'Donnell Photography
