What a fab turnout and an ace afternoon together on the site of our community tree nursery to celebrate our 2nd anniversary! There was cake!Thankyou to everyone who contributed to the nursery today with their energy and efforts. It was great to have so many people! Careful weeding of the oak beds, new bed preparation, potting up, hanging out with horses, pigs, digging, fencing. It was all happening today!We're so lucky to have the team from Friendly Soap join us and really push us forwards with our preparation of the lower beds. Great work team, thankyou! We hope you feel drawn to come along and see for yourself what we're doing here. Every Friday is #forusfriday where you can meet new people, spend time outside and get the rewards of spending time in the beautiful scenery that this very unique place has to offer.Location, grid reference and guidance to help you find us is all available through our website www.forustree.org and our volunteer pack.#communitytreenursery #WePlantTrees#babytrees #communitymatters #growthecommunity #hebdenbridge #communityfoundationforcalderdale #CFFC#volunteer #comealong#yourewelcome#thankyou #AceTeam #treenursery ...

According to forestresearch.gov.uk, 1 hectare of woodland will capture up to 500 tonnes of carbon over 100 years. The average carbon footprint of every UK citizen is 12.7 tonnes per year. That's approximately 1000 tonnes over a lifetime. Based on this, every UK citizen would need to plant over 2 hectares of woodland.#carbonfootprint #planttrees#plantmoretrees#growthefuture #co2emissions#tree #carbonemissions#1000tonnes ...
