Chris and Teresa planting trees
TREE PLANTING AT MARLPIT

Tuesday turned out to be a lovely mild day for the group that gathered to plant trees round the borders of Marlpit Community Garden. They were “whips” donated by the Woodland Trust. One team concentrated on clearing undergrowth and planting a mixture of hawthorns, rowans and cherry trees. Others focused on clearing round previously planted trees and planting dogwood near the entrance. We also have hazel trees to join those already established at the far end of the site and birches that we can use to start a small birch grove.

After a busy morning the group enjoyed a relaxing meal.
A welcome lunch break
