Urban Tree Challenge Fund
The trees have arrived from the Woodland Trust and have been transported to the Thame Allotment Society allotments near Chinnor Rugby Club where they have been heeled in to keep them healthy until we decide whether to plant out now or to nurture until next year.
The boxes of trees were transported to the allotments by Sonja Francis. Here she is showing off her electric cargo bike. As an avid conservationist Sonja has this bike for getting around but also it has a huge load capability. Sonja is keen for people in Thame to see the benefits of electric vehicles and to demonstrate how a combination of electric and pedal power can move large objects with ease.
If you need anything transporting around Thame Sonja is keen to use her bike to help so please do contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Would you like to nurture ?
The trees from the Woodland Trust are very small at the moment. We may be looking for volunteers to take a few whips, plant them in pots and look after them until November 2021 when they will have grown to a size more likely to survive. If you might be interested please do contact email@example.com. We can pot them up for you if you don't have the pots or compost.
