In anticipation of its move to permanent premises in 2013, the Jewish Community Centre for London has created an environmentally friendly project for young people.
Ten schools near the new building in Finchley Road, Hampstead, will each nurture a fruit tree sapling during the construction process over the next two-and-a-half years.
Pupils will give regular updates of their trees' development to the JCC's website and Twitter feed. Once the building opens, school representatives will be invited to a ceremony at which they will be asked to donate their trees to local institutions.
