Treerrific participation at Tiny Forest, Hinckley!Tiny Forest - big weeds!!

Three GoodGym members came to the Tiny Forest Hinckley to meet Louise from Earthwatch and local people interested in helping with citizen, science and weeding. Sun, cloud, warm temperatures, it was a classic summers day. ( maybe not, we didn’t have rain!) Many Tiny Forest‘s have benches to provide a nice place to gather. Louise from Earthwatch introduced the session, which included carbon capture, soil, filtration, compaction, biodiversity, and climate. We also did yoga for both sessions which seem to go down well with adults and children alike. We had children and adults of all ages getting involved with measuring, counting and uploading information via the Tiny Forest portal. We had lots of weeding to do and even found a dead Christmas tree to remove! It was a treerrific session, one of the best I have been involved with. Let’s hope it’s planted some seeds in the youth to take care of our trees and the environment around them.
thanks to Kimberly and Kay ( honorary member ) from GoodGym.
Such a great day, so many families took part it was lovely to see the children get excited about nature and help them do all the activities as well as lots of weeding. Such a great initiative 😁
