Tree planting and spring preparations

March 25 - April 2

HELP, we need HELP!  Time is getting on and we know it’s a bit late now, so please come and help us.

The contents of these pallets have the potential to transform our landscape here at Gosberton Bank Nursery.  With thanks to the Woodland Trust (as part of their PUR project) we have 2700 hedging and trees to plant, and we need HELP!

PLEASE come and help with our tree planting and spring tidy up.  We have  work parties on the weekends of 25-26 March and 1-2 April to help us get hedge lines and tree belts planted.  There are also possibilities on week days.

Please use this link to book for work parties so we know who will be here on which days, (you can also see how many other people might be around on each day) and an email with your details to David (see below), too would be helpful.  Please contact David if you would like to come on a weekday.

What you need to bring:

  • wet weather gear (hopefully to leave in the car!) and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty
  • boots – it will be muddy
  • a spade, if you have one
  • strong gloves (lots of hawthorn and blackthorn) if you have them
  • some lunch to share (we will provide some soup to go with what everyone brings along)

We will provide vegetable soup, coffee, tea, biscuits, water and encouraging smiles!  We’ll also have some spare gloves.

The trees are now all ‘heeled in’ waiting for the ground to be prepared and people to help…..
