Muck in, dig deep and get muddy in Ruskin Park this Saturday at the start of tree planting season with London-based charity, Trees for Cities.
Everyone’s welcome to this community planting event which should see the Old Bowling Green turned into an informal garden, creating a new space for the community and increasing the biodiversity of the park.
There will be encouraging live music from Dulwich Ukelele Club, plus face painting, arts and crafts and Apple Day activities to keep small tree planters amused.
Over the next five months Trees for Cities will plant 70,000 new urban trees in deprived areas of cities across the UK and internationally.
You can also join Trees for Cities on Clapham Common on Saturday 17 November, replacing trees which have died due to old age and disease, creating new woodland planting and community orchard planting.
Be at Ruskin Park, Lambeth from 11am-3pm on Saturday 20 October to help Trees for Cities.
