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 intergenerational tree planting and community gardening, with outdoor exploration for children. Our workshop leaders 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 nature-based solutions.

We can design bespoke events for a variety of participants. Our workshop leaders can work with you to tailor the workshops to suit schools, colleges, community groups and businesses.

 

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.

Eashing Cemetery Community Garden and Orchard

We are delighted to share that Roots for the Future is working with Waverley Borough Council to deliver a new community garden project in Godalming. Eashing Cemetery Community Garden and Orchard brings people together from Godalming and surrounding villages to enjoy and enhance their local green space. The new community garden is at Eashing Cemetery on Frankly Rd and everyone is invited to help preserve its natural habitat and to enjoy its peace and tranquillity.

It's Great Big Green Week! The theme this year is "let's swap together for good". What could you swap that would benefit the planet? Perhaps some seeds for the garden, or skill swap at your allotment. Or skill share with a neighbour so that you both get something done that's been put off.

Or how about learning more from others about what benefits nature by getting involved in a local community garden. In Godalming? Join us at Eashing Cemetery Community Garden and Orchard for our weekly sessions on Tuesdays 4-6pm.

We would love to hear what you are up to this Great Big Green Week!

Happy World Environment Day! This year's theme is #GenerationRestoration.

Roots for the Future focuses on children and young people with the vision that we can help to inspire the next generation to live more harmoniously with nature. While all ages are welcome to our community events, our work with children and young people gives them the opportunity to engage in practical solutions to the climate crisis and biodiversity loss.

One of the ways we bring children closer to nature is at the community garden we help to run. Recently at Eashing Cemetery Community Garden and Orchard school groups and after school clubs have been digging out turf to make way for planting wildflower seeds and doing bug hunts! In the following seasons and years the same children can come back in see the changes they have made to this previously unloved section of green space.

We are working with these children and young people so they can become the #GenerationRestoration.

"We cannot turn back time, but we can grow forests, revive water sources, and bring back soils. We are the generation that can make peace with land." #WorldEnvironmentDay
