Lockdown Woods

The Lockdown Woods project, run by Newbury Friends of the Earth, is encouraging local residents to find tree seedlings in their gardens and allotments while under lockdown this year, to put them in pots and look after them in their own gardens. The aim is to grow them on until they are big enough to plant into a new wood which will be called ‘Lockdown Wood’. It will commemorate this hugely difficult period of disruption and sacrifice, and we hope that people can dedicate a tree to someone special to them, maybe a key worker, someone who has been seriously affected by this pandemic, or maybe died from Covid19. We plan to purchase saplings to plant out this winter as most home-grown saplings will not be large enough by then, adding the locally grown ones in once they are sufficiently sturdy in winter 2021 or 2022.
