Homegrown planting Session 1 Stroud Green
Time & Location
About The Event
West Berkshire Council has given us permission to plant them on
Stroud Green and our community tree planting weekend is 6 and 7 November,
from 10am to 1pm each day. We will be in the south east sector of the Green,
beyond the children’s play area.
Let us know you're coming by registering your saplings on our get involved page.
No need to book a slot, just turn up anytime between 10am and 1pm with your
sapling(s). Please check before coming that it is at least 0.5m in height (from the soil
surface), and is healthy. The council tree officers confirmed we can plant ash
saplings there, if you have one of these.
Your sapling/s (labelled in ink with species please)
Spade, mallet if you have one
Large container of water to water it once planted.
We will provide you with stakes, a range of tree guards, mulch mats and mycorrhizal
fungi to help the young woodland establish a ‘wood wide web’. Also some daffodil and crocus bubls to plant around your tree if you like!
If you need any help, then
1. Go to our FB group where you can request assistance
from the Lockdown Woods community.
2. Otherwise, contact the team via our website Newburyfoe.co.uk
Parking – there is very limited street parking around Stroud Green. The Halfords /
Burger King car park is probably your best bet, it’s free for 2 hours. If your sapling
pot is very heavy, you can probably offload it in Greenham Rd alongside the Green,
then move your car to the car park.
We look forward to welcoming you in Stroud Green on 6 or 7 November, and
planting the fourth Lockdown Wood together! (Information about the first three is on
our Facebook page and website).
