Tree Planting – Edible Campus Project


The University of Lincoln is bringing a modern twist to the walled garden with its new Edible Campus Project. As an initial stage of the project student volunteers will be planting heritage varieties of apple trees at the Brayford Campus on 27th January 2016. Some of the trees will be planted against walls to create a modern version of the growing of fruit in Victorian walled kitchen gardens.

The varieties of apple tree to be planted include the Lincolnshire heritage varieties of Ellison’s Orange and Lord Burghley – both of which were developed in the county. The tree planting is the initial stage of a wider project, which will see facilities created for students to grow their own food in the Student Village on the Campus. Join us along with Vice Chancellor Mary Stuart in this first stage of the Edible Campus Project.

When: 27th January 2016 – 12pm

Where: Outside Village Hall
