Free Trees and Three Spades


Last week I had a day off from my Men’s Shed work to visit the Great Yorkshire Show in Harrogate. The event showcases some of the finest agricultural and countryside produce available and is an excellent way to network with partner organisations and discover new opportunities.

One of the conversations I had was with staff of the Woodland Trust who were giving away free trees and also have a small grant scheme for groups to set up a community woodland management scheme and purchase tools and equipment such as spades and saws.  They were very friendly and helpful and some of the men’s sheds projects that are thinking about practical conservation work may well find their help useful.
