Cost of living support
Colchester City Council is providing support for residents facing the cost of living crisis.
Date issued: 16 September 2020
The Woodland Trust website has lots of advice on what to do with your seeds next, so you can grow a tree: https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/plant-trees/advice/grow-from-seed/
If you need some help, seed gathering packs will also be available from High Woods Country Park Visitor Centre for just £1 per pack. They will be available when the centre is open from 20 September to 19 October. Packs will provide the information you need, a tree trail map and paper bags for collecting your seeds in.
Cllr David King, Portfolio Holder for Business and Resources, said: “The very heart of the Colchester Woodland Project is to encourage our community to love and care for our environment, from wildflowers and meadows, to our woods and parks, old or new. Going for an Autumn walk and gathering seeds is a wonderful way to spend time with friends and family, and the benefits it can provide to helping our environment thrive are simply huge. I’d encourage everyone to get involved – let’s work together to make a better, greener Colchester.”
So, this autumn why not go for a walk, collect and grow your seeds, plant them to grow and then come and plant your tree as part of the Colchester Woodland Project in the future!
