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.



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.
