Tree planting at Greeba - *volunteers wanted*

11.00 a.m. on Sunday, 24th February 2019

We will continue planting the hedge which was started last Sunday. The ground is mostly stone free and soft, making it a fairly easy planting. A short walk to the planting site takes a couple of minutes. 

We will meet at 11.00 a.m. and our plantings tend to last for two hours. There will be coffee, tea and maybe cakes for everyone afterwards. Please wear warm clothes and Wellington boots or stout shoes would be sensible. If you could bring stout garden gloves it would be a help but if you dont have any we can give you some. That is all you need to bring, we will have plenty of spades available.

We understand that some people have busy Sundays and need to leave earlier which is absolutely no problem – we welcome every person who takes part! Dont worry if you have never planted a tree in your life - we will show you how to do it! 

Parking is hard to find in the area so please ride share as much as possible - it is the eco-friendly way to travel. We have people coming from Douglas, Ramsey and Laxey. If you like a lift from one of the areas, just post underneath or offer a lift yourself. 

Directions for Sunday, 24th February:

The planting site is at Eary Lhane farm in Greeba. Coming from Peel Road turn onto Mill Rd, just next to Greeba bridge. To park, turn right where the road splits and the Eary Lhane farm is 200m further on the left hand side. To get to the planting site, you need to walk 200m back to where the road split. Just across on the left there is a gate (likely with a car in front), walk through it and then right up a small ledge. 

A map is attached.

Last planting's photos.. unfortunately we only remembered to take some at the very end after a few people had left.

We planted 220 trees in total, next week we will complete the hedge 500 specimens strong. The majority were hawthorn and blackthorn with a few other trees to add variety.
