Event description
In association with The Parks Trust and Broughton & MK PC Middleton Tree Planting Day - 27th March 2021. First session 10:30-12:00

About this Event

We are Community Trees MK and our aim is to see 1,000 trees a year planted for the next 10 years across the Borough of Milton Keynes, working with local communities to plant the trees.

We are partnering with The Parks Trust and Broughton & Milton Keynes Parish Council to plant on a fabulous area of Middleton Park north of the site of Oakgrove Secondary School. We will be planting small trees that will grow alongside some existing trees to create a small woodland.

On the Day:

The Middleton March Tree Planting day will take place on Saturday 27th March 2021 – 10:30 to 16:00, we will have three sessions on the day each 1.5 hours in length, starting at 10:30, 12:30, 14:30 respectively.

We would like as many local people as possible to come along for an hour, to plant some trees. This is an open-air event so please dress for cold and potentially damp weather and come ready to do some digging.

No experience is required, full training will be given. The aim is to have fun while helping the environment.

This is a family-friendly event however this is a rural setting with no facilities in the immediate area. Please bring your own refreshments. Sorry, NO TOILET facilities will be available at the tree planting site.

While we love dogs, this activity is not for them. Please leave your dog at home.

Equipment:

All equipment will be provided and will be available when you arrive. Do bring a pair of gardening gloves or old gloves if you have them and please wear stout shoes or boots.

Covid compliant:

All equipment will be sanitised before and between planting slots and we will ask for social distancing to be maintained at all times. If you do not feel well on the day, please stay at home. There will be other tree planting opportunities where you can get involved.

Getting to the planting site:

Please walk or cycle if you can. If you need to travel by car, we ask that you use The Parks Trust car park by the River Ouzel in Middleton (Woodall Close off Noon Layer Drive). This is just a short walk from the planting site.
