Grow Back Greener end of Project

From beginnings of May until September 2021 our Forest School Leaders run twice a week activities at Tivoli Park and Knight's Hill Woods for local families, improving and maintaining the sites, learning about nature and enjoying the outdoors in a time that was most needed, when families were coming out of lockdown and / or isolation.

Before the end of the year we are scheduled to plant more trees and install a footbridge on the Park (more information coming soon) and our families will be maintaining the site during winter and all the way to spring.
