  • 20 British pounds

FORESTS FROM SEED 11th September 2022 In this one day training we will be looking at the Children’s Forest ‘Forests from Seed’ project. We’ll be located at our small tree nursery and will learn how to process and germinate the seeds collected the previous day on the foraging course. We will look at different ways of treating various kinds of see in order to germinate and grow them into saplings. Also covered will be how to set up a small tree nursery with local children to grow trees for Children’s Forests and other tree planting initiatives. You will take home with you some seed prepared for winter, so your own tree nursery will have begun! This course is intended for adults and young people who wish to grow trees from seed with children.
