PLANT A TREE
It's the perfect time of year in the UK to do something amazing - plant a tree
They help maintain our mental and physical wellbeing, keep our cities cool, their root systems help manage excess rainfall and they provide a habitat for other plants and wildlife. Yet despite this, the number of trees on the planet continues to decline. The Woodland Trust are committed to changing that. They’ll provide support and advice for groups and individuals who want to get planting, in an allocated woodland, a public space or in your own garden. Visit their website to find out how you can make the world a little bit greener.
Did you know our Founder, Jo Foster is one of the driving forces behind Rufus Woods, a community project to mark 950 years of Richmond Castle? A new woodland of 950 trees for the people of Richmondshire are being planted, with the hope of more to follow as we head towards the millennium celebrations in 2071.
