Even the smallest space can be suitable for a mini forest. For schools, it can provide a hands-on learning space, protect students from noise and air pollution and help them develop a love for nature and the knowledge and skills they need to make a positive impact on the world around them.
Apart from a suitable site, we need a good level of communication, cooperation and commitment from schools. The school will have to make sure that a group of volunteers commit to look after the trees, especially during dry weather.
Head over to Growing Green and see what other options there are: we can plant orchards, hedges, sow wildflower meadows, build a pond or simply create a wild corner for all creatures.
