Our first Tree planting event was in North Devon in early April 2017. We planted a conservation woodland of 1500 native broad leaf species, on a slope overlooking the farm, in the early spring sunshine. After which everyone had a brilliant party, dancing the night away to great bands and Dj’s.
The following March braving the snow, rain and gales we planted a similar number, and species mix of trees, at Lowton Farm in mid Devon. Again we celebrated the planting, and warmed ourselves up, with another fantastic knees up in true English festival style; with mud and beer and camaraderie.
The trees that we all planted at these events are doing well and both sites intend to host follow up planting events in the future.
We have been approached to plant another new site will be having another event there this winter. Details to be announced soon
So watch this space.
