Fruit Routes – Some Thoughts
Participants in the Fruit Routes tree planting weekend across Loughborough University campus share some of their thoughts about Fruit Routes. The film was shot entirely on iPhone by Paul Conneally.
Fruit Routes is an artist led initiative that started in 2011 to develop the university grounds as an edible landscape anchored around fruit tree planting, increasing the foraging opportunities on campus and sharing knowledge with the university and wider community through events, participation and mapping. Fruit Routes aims to create a legacy of several hundred fruit trees on site which will bear fruit for years to come for people to harvest, share and enjoy.
Fruit Routes was conceived by Anne-Marie Culhane and is supported by the Sustainability Team at Loughborough University and is in partnership with the Landscaping Our Society Group.
Fruit Routes Artists Include: Miriam Keye, Paul Conneally, Jo Salter, David Blayze, Ways of the Wyrd Border Morris, Bob Levene, Stephen Watts, Gillian Whiteley
Fruit Routes sends out a big thanks to: the Landscaping Our Society (now called The Landscaping and Gardening Society) team, the tireless LU staff Karen, Mark and Amy and student volunteer Laura Senior.
