Alumni orchard planted

Brighton Permaculture Trust helped Brighton Aldridge Community Academy plant an Alumni Orchard this December.


The Brighton Aldridge Community Academy (BACA) planted eight trees during their alumni event on 4 December 2013, with each tree dedicated to a previous pupil.

Brighton Permaculture Trust helped current BACA students to prepare the ground for planting, while other students took part in apple juicing and baking with Brighton & Hove Food Partnership to prepare an "apple feast" for everyone to share.

Viv Ayward, representing Westlain, helped plant the trees, saying:

"It was wonderful to be there and part of the tree planting.... I can't wait to bite into that first apple in three years time!!"

The trees were planted in partnership with Brighton & Hove Food Partnership and partially funded by our Orchards Without Borders project and by the South Downs National Park. For photos and more information about the event, visit BACA's blog.
