Thanks to the wonderful and energetic teams from RCMA, Dawnus and Camgrain, the bees are saved in the Bard's birthplace. Teams enjoyed a treasure hunt with a difference around Stratford upon Avon on a lovely sunny day. With generous support from RCMA and money is being used to support the apiary in the Forest of Hearts, where thousands of bees in our new beehives are busy pollinating plants and preparing honey for sale later in the year.
A team of enthusiastic and energetic young people work with the Forest of Hearts and our new apprentices to design and create a Fruit Tree Guild Show Garden. A soil test carried out by the teams, led by Frank Head from Jaguar Land Rover reveals that the soil is neutral and perfect for planting over 100 types of edible plants, shrubs and trees.
A team of graduates from Jaguar Land Rover give up their time for a CSR awayday in The Forest of Hearts. Nearly 50 young and enthusiastic engineers make light work of planting over 1000 trees during their volunteering day. By creating the hedgerows the team can rest assured that they will provide shelter, create a windbreak and encourage wildlife, whilst growing berries, sloes, rose hips and nuts in the new forest garden near to Stratford upon Avon.
Thanks to Lani and the team at Coventry Ikea who raised funds to support the tree planting which meant that The Woodland Trust are able to supply the native hedgerow at no cost to The Forest of Hearts.
