Update on Progress and Warden Park Academy Tree Planting Project - June

Hello Everyone, 

Hope you’re as well as can be.

I’m pleased to share with you this update on programmes in the garden area at Warden Park Academy from Ben Woods:

“The Community School Garden is going from strength to strength, with your generous help we have started to see some real progress on site. We have been able to buy and erect a large polytunnel and create a wonderful space for students and staff to be able to practice some mindfulness during the school day and beyond.1623772097_img_0371.jpg

With the help of TreeAction UK, we have secured the trees to be planted in November, a mixture of fruit trees for the orchard and a number of lime trees which will form an avenue behind the Millenium Wood, either side of the current cross country running track. 

The next phase of our project is creating and planting around the pond at the bottom of the site; it should take no longer than a weekend and fortunately we have been offered the use of a mini digger.  

A number of volunteers are working at the weekends to ensure the site is kept clear and watered.The Community Garden is always looking for volunteers to help and would appreciate any further interest beyond the financial support you have kindly provided.”


I will send you all a further update in a couple of months.

In the meantime can I mention TreeActionUK is also looking for volunteers and supporters for tree planting and maintenance projects for other schools and academies in Sussex to get them learning and relaxing outdoors. This includes projects in public spaces such as local parks as well as school grounds. Please contact us if you’d like to support us or would like to know more via [email protected] ,  keep updated via social media Tree Action (facebook.com) or via our website www.treeactionuk.org 

Best wishes, 

Ricky Purnell
