Tree Nursery

Tree planting is crucial to the regeneration of brown field sites. Our Community Tree Nursery combines the growing of saplings for distribution in the Community Forest, with community engagement activities that involve people of all ages; learning, volunteering and having fun are all rooted in what we do.

Our shop has a wide variety of items on offer from local providers, craftsmen and craftswomen.

From walking sticks and hats to jams, cards and teapots, our shop has a fantastic range of querky, practical and edible items perfect for that special purchase.
