Update on Progress and Warden Park Academy Tree Planting Project

Hello Everyone, 

Hope you're all keeping well. As many of you know reading this we postponed the tree planting until the next season i.e. November/December due to the Covid-19 restrictions and the need to get volunteers, donors and students involved. However there have been other things going on so here is a quick update.1616759150_img-20210326-wa0000.jpg

Most notably from the funds raised so far we have paid for a 30 x 14ft Poly tunnel in the garden area which has been delivered and put together. A mixture of flower and veg seeds have been planted inside already. The school have also ordered pond liner for the pond's development which will start soon.


All 10 of our Tree Sponsors have been sent their fantastic Certificates of Dedication designed by the students, Thank You cards designed by students have been signed and sent out by Joshua Mohamed, Head Boy. ( We will be giving more of these out after the tree planting events ). All but one of the potted Oaks that were adopted have been collected and will be finding a new home, and TreeAction badges have been sent to those who asked.  


We will be ordering the 52 Trees including the fruit trees in August. In September the lead ranger and arborist Liam Lord will be returning to the site to mark out the exact locations for planting all of them. We will also firm up the dates for the tree planting events, as well as the Tea and Cake and Tour of the tree planting sites event.  

Thanks again for your support. If you'd like to support the work of the Warden Park Academy's  garden area and development as a volunteer or get involved in the tree planting events please get in touch. 

We are also looking for support for future projects with other schools, so if you'd like to support TreeAction's work as a volunteer, or support as an individual or corporate donor, or get involved in other school projects we will do please get in touch by emailing me: [email protected]

Best wishes, 

Ricky Purnell
