Yesterday- sleet and snow, today….blue skies and sun ! Just as well as we welcomed the Lord Mayor of Birmingham to our planting at Harvest Fields as well as two of our sponsors.
School Council pupils from Little Sutton Primary School also joined us to make sure that the adults did their job correctly. Their school has an entrance facing this area of parkland, and in the centre of the park is The Harvest Fields Centre where we were treated to hot drinks and biscuits after all 15 trees were safely planted.
We were also joined on site by staff from Waitrose in Mere Green who came along to assist our younger planters. BTFL were lucky enough to be nominated to receive funding from their in house Community ‘disc’ initiative.
Graduate Planet had also assisted in funding the tree planting at this site and we were pleased to meet Kate Evans who was representing them.
Pupils worked hard as there were 15 large trees scattered around the site. Lots of photographs today as the sun was shining! Follow this link to see them all.
