Sunday 10th of November 10.30 am

🌳🐦🌱🌿🌳

We will return to Glen Helen, where we have already been three times this season and planted about three quarters of the 1000 saplings goal. A good final push would be a proper bow to our efforts there. The planting is easy to intermediate, sturdy shoes to stand mud are recommended. The fantastic land managers were so kind to spoil us with sandwiches, pastries and cakes last time.

πŸ₯•πŸπŸ°β˜•οΈ

The plantings tend to last for two to three hours and we share coffee and tea afterwards. All you need to bring is dirt proof and warm clothing, including sturdy shoes. If you can bring gardening gloves and a mug for coffee/tea along it would be a help but we can also provide them for you.

πŸšŒπŸš—πŸš²πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

The land is by Eairy Moar Farm, just west of the beautiful Glen Helen. Please try to be on time or only a little bit late as the land managers are so kind to transport people up and down the hill with 4x4s.

Parking is best at Glen Helen main car park. Glen Helen car park can be found on google maps https://goo.gl/maps/zjxGX3xhMH4sBXuV9 and governments maps on http://gov.im/maps/Image attachment

Glen Helen tree plantings

We will continue our tree planting on Eairy Moar Farm in Glen Helen, where we have planted 500 trees so far. The next two Sundays will hopefully take us up to the desired total of 1,000 trees. 

While the ground tends to be relatively easy to dig at Eairy Moar Farm, there are a few gentle slopes and a bit of mud - wellington boots help.

10.30 am we will meet at Glen Helens main car park. Please try to be on time or only a little bit late as the land managers are so kind to transport people up and down the hill with a 4x4. Glen Helen car park can be found on google maps https://goo.gl/maps/zjxGX3xhMH4sBXuV9 and governments maps on http://gov.im/maps/

Our plantings tend to last for two to three hours. There will be coffee, tea and maybe sweet temptations 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!
