Sarum Hall School Students and parents help plant trees donated by the school to local housing area orchard project
Students and parents from Sarum School joined local residents and volunteers at the Hilgrove Connects Spring Clean in Swiss Cottage. The School had donated towards the purchase of 8 fruit trees. These become part of two orchards planted on the Hilgrove estate comprising 19 new fruit trees, and ten fruiting climbers. The trees include some well-known varieties of fruit like Gala Apples and also some more unusual fruit like Goji Berries and Medlars. All are making a valuable contribution to increasing biodiversity by providing blossom for pollinators and a home for nature. The new trees also become great carbon busters in a very urban area along a heavily polluted route in Camden.
