Come and plant a new Tiny Forest at Downend Park, Bristol.

The Queen’s Green Canopy and Bristol City Council are working with Earthwatch Europe to establish a new Tiny Forest in Bristol. A Tiny Forest is a dense, fast-growing, native woodland made up of 600 trees planted in a tennis court-sized plot. They are not only an attractive location for wildlife but are great for people to enjoy as well, and can provide a range of benefits in the fight against climate change.

Join us on Thursday 23rd March where we will be planting the trees that will make up the Tiny Forest. The event is free to attend and open to all ages. We will be start the first session at 10am and the second at 1pm – please make sure you arrive towards the start of your chosen session to ensure there is a tree for you to plant.

Equipment will be provided on the day but feel free to bring along your own gardening gloves and a spade if you have these. Please also bring any refreshments you will need whilst planting – we find a warming cup of tea is always a good idea!

The exact location is here (51°29’10.5″N 2°34’34.7″W | https://what3words.com///whites.shapes.royal) and it can be accessed via October Lane.
