 A New Outdoor Learning Resource for Carmarthenshire Primary Schools

There is a New, Special Grant Resource for supporting up to 20 Primary Schools in Carmarthenshire to plant trees in their grounds, up until March 31st 2013.

This is an amazing opportunity to engage children in the whole tree planting process, so that they may really take to heart their own small patch of woodland and become proud custodians of a long term learning resource for their school.

Successful Primary School applicants will each receive

  • a pack of native species trees
  • the loan of a tool kit for tree planting
  • planting accessories including tree guards, canes and mulch
  • a new bilingual 10 minute film DVD, proving a practical step-by-step guide on the tree planting process in a school grounds context, with a  simple, clear explanation about how trees work    
  • the services of a specialist tree advisor to give on site information and advice about where to  plant, suitable trees, planting techniques, after care and maintenance.

Carmarthenshire Environment Partnership and the Forest Education Initiative, are providing the Grant funds, with trees supplied by the Woodland Trust.

The Forest Education Initiative Carmarthenshire Cluster Group is administering the grant. For further details and to apply, please contact:

Caz Phillips 
Tel:01834-831997  or 07903-859-515

Expressions of Interest must be received by January 18th  2013 at the latest.
