Tree Planting and Wellbeing Day
Sunday February 16th 2020

Venue: The Apricot Centre,

Huxhams Cross Farm, Dartington, TQ9 6AA

Volunteer Event: Open to all ages

Trees have an incredible range of benefits, for climate, for wildlife, communities, mental health and wellbeing for yourself and for others…

We all need more trees.. Come and help us plant some! We are delighted to say that the New Futures Academy we have teamed up with The Apricot Centre to offer a day of planting, learning and connecting with trees.  

We will begin the day with teas, coffees and breakfast snacks at 10:30am. We will begin planting trees at 11:00am after a brief introductory talk from our facilitators. At 1pm we will stop for soup and bread, followed by a short talk and discussion on how nature and tree planting improves our mental health and can help with the eco-anxiety that many of us are feeling. We will also hear from Rachel Phillips about the work of The Apricot Centre and from Chris Smith about The New Futures Academy.
