Events

Watch this short video which gives you a taste of what our community tree planting events are like.

Our workshops involve communities in their local areas in tree planting for all ages, and outdoor exploration and games for children. Our workshop leaders are forest school trained and highlight how trees and plants are the fundamental basis of all life, and crucial to maintaining a sustainable environment.

We invite all ages to participate, and envisage that our involvement of children and young people will help to inspire the next generation to address climate change with environmental solutions.

We can design bespoke tree planting events for all audiences. Our workshop leaders tailor the workshops to suit a variety of different, groups from schools to community groups.

 

Values

Our values are

Environmentalism • Community • Engagement • Participation • Integration

We aim to cultivate a lasting legacy of environmental sustainability by engaging local communities in tree planting. We believe that participation in our workshops will contribute to social integration at a local level.

Yesterday was the fourth of six tree planting workshops with Year 9 Charterhouse School boys. We planted a hedgerow and a couple of copses, and talked about why planting trees is so important. Given how many trees are cut down each year one boy suggested each global citizen plant a tree everyday. Love this ambitious suggestion!

Thanks a million to all those who joined us on Saturday to plant trees for future generations to enjoy, and to our funders CALA Homes and People's Postcode Lottery. It was an absolutely brilliant afternoon!

A boy left his bike chained to a tree on Washington's Vashon Island when he went away to war in 1914. He never returned, leaving the tree no choice but to grow around the bike- incredible!
