The Woodland Trust has kindly provided us with around 400 shrubs and small trees as part of a ‘Wild Harvest’ Community Tree pack. The species are Blackthorn, Dog Rose, Elder, Hazel and Crab Apple.

Apologies for the short notice but we are looking for volunteers to help us with the planting of some of the trees for a couple of hours this Sunday (13th Nov) starting at 2.00pm. We will meet at the bridge nearest the Oxgangs end of the park. We propose to carry out the planting on the bank near the new flood defence. Some of the trees will be planted by local schoolchildren in a few weeks time.

We will supply all necessary tools and instruction but we do recommend stout footwear.
