Trees planted in Harpenden as part of ‘Our Planet Our Future’ project

A tree was planted in Harpenden as part of an event encouraging people to protect the environment and live sustainably.
The silver birch tree, donated by Aylett Nurseries, was planted in Leyton Green by Harpenden town mayor Cllr David Heritage on Tuesday, November 6.
Originally the tree formed part of an art installation at the ‘Our Planet Our Future’ event, which was held at Rothamsted Research on April 21 this year.
Visitors at the event wrote pledges on parcel labels, which were hung on three trees. Each of the trees are now being planted across the district.
Sustainable St Albans trustee Lesley Flowers, who was part of the group organising the event, said: “We are delighted that the legacy from the Our Planet Our Future event includes the planting of the three trees from the event’s art installation.
“Videos of the inspiring talks are also available on our website.”
The project is continuing with a series of free evening events at The Harpenden Arms in High Street. The first event, ‘Low Impact Christmas’, will be held on Tuesday, November 20 at 7.30pm, and will feature talks from The Refill Pantry, Sustainable St Albans and The Green Kitchen, followed by disucssion.
