Forest from Seed: Setting up a Tree Nursery (EAST SUSSEX)
We are delighted to be partnering with the Children’s Forest for events in late Autumn. These will focus on gathering seeds and growing trees from healthy local tree seeds, alongside connective cultural practices such as singing, crafting, storytelling and foraging.
We recommend participating in both the Foraging and Forest from Seed workshops. This training is subsidised by the People’s Project funding.
These two days will take place at the site of the Forest from Seed Nursery. We will explore the practical considerations of setting up and tending a tree nursery with children and local communities. Looking at how to germinate some of the common native trees that support and increase local biodiversity as well as providing crafts and wild foods for our communities.
