Schoolchildren to take care of apple orchard planted by Belarusian president 

MINSK, 20 April (BelTA) - Local schoolchildren will be taking care of the apple orchard planted during the national cleanup day, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko told the media, BelTA has learned.

The Belarusian leader traveled to his hometown for the national cleanup day where he helped plant apple trees.

"Schoolchildren will take care of the orchard and see the fruits of their labor. As I said, every school should have its own garden where kids can work with their hands. This will help them feel more grounded," the head of state said.

Aleksandr Lukashenko explained that earlier there were community allotments here. But now the village houses are mainly used as summer cottages, and the current owners and their children and grandchildren make use of their own vegetable gardens.

"It was a wasteland. We planted apple trees to keep the land in use," the president said.
