This planting was requested by the Friends of Acocks Green Recreation Ground (Westley Road) and will involve the local Scouts and the Friends of AGRG.

logo-trees-for-life-lsp-greenThe sapling trees for this event have been funded by the Woodland Trust, as part of their new partnership with the Trust as they expand their areas of work in to urban areas. They will be planting 500 sapling trees to form a hedgerow, plus 10 fruit trees to create a community orchard, which BTFL has funded. The hedgerow will provide foraging opportunities for fruit such as berries. Local people are invited to come along and help with this positive environmental project.
The event will commence at 10.30 am and will be completed by around 12 noon.

    I am interested in helping. Do I need to bring a spade or anything?

      Hello Anne – that’s great. I am sure there will be some equipment available but if you want to bring your own that’s fine. We look forward to the new saplings getting established.
