Since September 2010, KEEP has worked with the following schools:

Fybough National School has planted a living willow fence with archways into the orchard and a living willow dome – called ‘The Reading Room’ by the children!

Fossa National School have made a school grounds plan, built 8 raised beds with gravel pathways and planted native hedgerows around their grounds.

Ardfert National School have planted 480 native hedgerow plants around their grounds and mulched them – well done to all their classes!

Tralee Educate Together have made a school grounds plan and done 2 days good work to lay a pathway of recycled slabs, build 4 raised beds, plant a living willow fence and plant a beech hedge.

Castleisland Presentation Primary visited Gortbrack Organic Farm in February to learn about local organic food and biodiversity.

Killorglin Youth Group are doing an ongoing project to learn about organic food production, willow craft and the biodiversity of Kerry.

Stella Maris Secondary and Fenor Priomary School, Tramore, Waterford, both carried out a garden planning day with funding from Tesco Tramore.  Pupils at Fenor built a pond and Stella Maris Green School committee planted an orchard, a soft fruit area and a woodland.
