Suffolk - CW: Forest for Our Children (Lawshall)

Green Light Trust's 1st Community-owned WildSpace

Forest for Our Children is used by schools and the local community as an educational and recreational area.  We are continually working with the local community to increase biodiversity in the area and build new habitats for wildlife.

Local people have been involved with Forest for Our Children at every stage:

The project was planted over 18 years ago and is based at the rear of The Foundry, Lawshall.  It is 9.2 ha of mixed native woodland with a pond, willow maize and traditional Papua New Guinea, Hauswin (traditional meeting house) on top of a mound.

People can join in the regular work activity sessions which take place on:

Midweek working party – first Thursday of every month from 9:30 to 12:30.

Weekend working party – last Sunday of every month except December from 9:30 to 12:30.
