Volunteers brave the rain for Dig Together Day
December 17, 2012
Volunteers braved the wind and rain to plant 250 sapling trees for Dig Together Day.
Twenty people planted silver birch, oak and rowan trees at Jealott’s Hill Community Landshare for the Royal Horticultural Society’s national event.
Caroline Titley, chief executive of Bracknell Forest Homes, one of the partners of the landshare, said: “There is an ongoing opportunity for volunteers to come along and help as well as more participants, both groups and individuals, to enjoy being out in the fresh air, grow produce and help maintain and improve wildflower and wildlife habits across the six-acre field.
“There has been a great transformation in the site in the past year and we hope this continues.”
The next event will be an apple wassail on Saturday, January 5 and all visitors and volunteers will be made very welcome to join this family day for lots of ‘apple-related fun’.
