Get involved in the Campus Apple Bake Off!

This autumn sees a packed programme of events on campus as part of the Fruit Routes initiative.

The Fruit Routes project, designed by artist Anne-Marie Culhane and the University’s Sustainability Team, aims to develop the University grounds as an edible and sustainable landscape. It’s supported by the University Landscape Master Plan and Loughborough Students’ Landscaping and Gardening Society (LAGS) and was officially launched in October 2011.

Providing an enriched habitat for people, plants, insects and animals, the Fruit Routes scheme aims to leave a lasting legacy on the campus, boosting foraging opportunities for years to come. It is about planting, harvesting and sharing food for free and is aimed at the whole of Loughborough – University students, staff, campus-based partners and local residents. Come and join in!
