Wishes for the future were planted underneath silver birch trees by children from Brington School as they tried to help the environment.
Two children from each class were chosen to help to plant eight trees at Manor Farm Granaries, in Brington.
Pupils wrote their wishes for the future of the planet on leaf-shaped pieces of paper and put them in the ground before planting the trees on top.
Some of the wishes included world peace and a world in which people did not drop litter.
Andrea Loakes, who has run the granaries with her husband Stuart for more than 40 years, said: "I invited children from Brington School to plant some trees as many of them might never have been given the opportunity to do their bit for the environment by planting a tree."
Manor Farm Granaries is being adapted into a specialist nature area for wildlife and trees. It should be open to the public at the start of next year.
