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 don't 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! Don't 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.

Roses are red Violets are blue If you want Valentrees You've got until tomorrow night, because this admin has got a super hot date after work on Thursday with a handsome Irish man and an M&S love sausage.
Carole A Kelly Jo Beckett Walker Kath Beedie what we were talking about yesterday... here's an idea lol
After they've removed any bits anyone else can use, I hope I can save at least one animal from the cruelty of vivisection by offering my body for medical research. But hopefully I'll be using it myself till it's worn out! If it could then help something to grow, that would be fantastic. It strikes me this is the natural order of things, although I understand anyone left behind wouldn't want me staring at them from the compost heap! And I'm not sure about feeding my sons worms in his wormery - but I guess I won't know about it!
Isle of Man Woodland Trust Have you mentioned this to the government, I'm sure a lot of people on the island would find this an agreeable option for when the time comes 😊🌱🌲🌻
The Isle of Man Woodland Trust would like to extend an official and heartfelt vote of thanks to the lovely folk over at 572 for their continued support this year.
We are a small charity, and we're run by busy volunteers in their spare time. Regular donations from our corporate members help us to keep everything running as it should so that we can carry on protecting and creating woodland in our beautiful island.
Thank you so much, 572, and blessings 'pon your houses! ~IOMWT
