Bottisham Village College pupils plant trees in honour of the Queen’s Green Canopy
In February this year, pupils from Bottisham Village School planted ten fruit trees – a selection of apple, pear and gages – on their temporary allotment at Anglesey Abbey. The trees were sponsored by Ridge Clean Energy and were planted to support the late Queen’s Green Canopy project ( see map here ). They will be moved to the school site when more robust and established.
This unique tree planting initiative was created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022, and to draw attention to the two greatest challenges facing humankind: climate change and the decline in biodiversity. The project has created a living legacy of over one million trees planted in Her Majesty’s name across the nation, serving as a lasting tribute to Her Majesty’s extraordinary service to her country and her people.
As a company, Ridge Clean Energy are committed to improving our environment for the benefit of wildlife and future generations and as such are pleased to work with Bottisham Village College to support this worthwhile project.
