Tree Planting on Sat 7th March, from 10.30am
reLEAF is a joint project between Zero-Carbon Haddenham and Haddenham Parish Council. reLEAF aims to double the tree cover in Haddenham parish by 2030. Research tells us this will have a major positive impact on Climate Change and is also good for us.
On the piece of open land illustrated, between the footpath and some garages on the edge of Sheerstock, we are going to plant four apple trees and a hazelnut tree, so they will provide food too.
This is not an open invitation, but we really hope that some closely located Sheerstock residents will be able to join us and help with the digging! Bring your spade and gloves, wear sturdy shoes and keep an eye on the weather forecast to see if you need a raincoat or sun hat!
Children of Sheerstock residents are also welcome to be involved with their parent's supervision. We will ask you to provide emergency contact details and listen to a quick safety briefing before starting.
If digging seems like it might be too strenuous for you then providing refreshments on the morning is another way to help if you want to be involved.
Once the trees are planted, they will need regular watering and the immediate area around them will need to be kept clear of weeds. It would be great if people living or working nearby can look after them for the first few years. In the longer term there will be fruit and nuts to harvest — we hope people will help themselves to what their family can eat that week & leave some for others to take.
If you have questions or want to get more involved in the reLEAF project, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
