On the 30th March we are hosting our very first tree plant up event for the Shepton Mallet Food Forest Plot and we are looking for volunteers!
As you may be aware the Woodland Trust and the Conservation Volunteers granted us a large amount of wild harvest trees. We have planted some of these but the rest are currently being heeled in waiting to be planted.
Tristan and Tobias have been working hard on the design and specification for the Shepton Mallet plot to ensure we are planting the best trees and vegetation for the space and where each tree should be located to work best for the food forest system. Many considerations have to be made, such as where the weather is coming from, historic issues with the land, drainage, soil variation, buffer zones, wild life corridors, pragmatism for end use by people and wild life and many other things which will effect how successful the food forest is.
If you would like to get involved with the event please contact us as we would love to hear from you.
All ages welcome, there will be a stall and refreshments available for donations.
