Thank you very much to all those volunteers who joined us over two weekends to tidy up and prepare for winter, all the trees in our Cherry Hinton nursery and for planting trees in various locations.
Over the weekend of the 18th / 19th November with the help of several of you, we successfully re-potted all the young trees, pruned them for winter, re-labeled all the trees and sorted out alphabetically each variety.
On the following weekend we planted out 38 trees in locations along Hauxton Road, the Addenbrookes Link Road, two Park and Ride locations and in the Trumpington Meadows Countryside park. Thank you for all your help.
The Cambridge community Collection project extended it’s boundaries to include planting for the first time at Nightingale Park. The response and numbers of volunteers that came to help was fantastic. We managed to plant eight trees this autumn but we aim to add to the planting over the next few years. Thank you to all the volunteers for your tremendous support!
On Friday 18th November we were invited to speak at the school assembly about this project and following on from that, children at the school helped us plant twenty different varieties of apple tree along the edge of the playing fields and in the enclosed garden. Over the next few years we will help the school prune and nurture the trees as well as adding further trees to the collection around the school car parking area and sports hall.
