More Trees for Chester?
A new initiative organised by Transition Chester could mean more indiginous and productive trees planted in the Chester area. In an exciting new project, volunteers hope to plant fruit and nut trees in a city wide initiative and are currently looking for funding to get the project underway. They already have the support of a number of local organisations and will be following in the footsteps of Transition Totnes (the first Transition Town) were dozens of volunteers planted nut trees around the town. Transition Chester hope this project will increase local biodiversity, educate local people about our native trees and provide a valuable edible resource for future generations.
Volunteers have already visited a garden run on permaculture principles in Llangollen and established links with local allotment groups in order to access advice and expertise.
