The sessions will run from 10am-12pm or 1pm-3pm on Friday 22nd to Saturday 23rd February. Please book into a session so we know how many to cater for. There will be transport available to site should you wish it, however it will only run before or after each session, please also book a space on the bus. Once you have finished planting you are welcome to stay around for longer but we can’t provide you with extra trees to plant (otherwise others will miss out).
