Guests and members were shown just how easy it was to take part in our Pocket Full of Acorns project, which aims to plant a National Community Garden Forest. Greg Peachey, Chair of the FREdome Visionary Trust, brought apples, pears, plums, cherries & hazel nuts to give out to guests, together with a stash of used plastic carrier bags. Image

Greg invited people to take away some fruit, nuts or sycamore seeds from the Sopwell House grounds, put soil in a carrier bag, throw in the fruit cores or seeds followed by a bit more soil and leave them to germinate on their patios or wherever they will receive plentiful sunshine in the Spring.

We look forward to hearing news of the seedlings progress.Image Image
