Love this idea idea and agree with Finn on the location. Well up for getting involved if this becomes a subgroup.

Is this for growing trees to a certain stage for community to then plant out in public areas or their gardens as “nursery” suggests? Will they be Food productive trees? Sounds nice 👍

Hey all, Me and Duncan are up for keeping the ball rolling on the tree nursery idea on Loveland. Think we will cover the new plot with a tarp for now, to stop weeds taking over. Lets get stockpiling currant cuttings! And rosa rugosa!

Thanks Finn, yes definitely up for giving this a go. Have some one year old oak and beech to help get us started. Haven't watched it yet but this looks useful...https://youtu.be/-UU6jj5Smp0

For anyone interested, Me and Duncan submitted an application for a tree-nursery start-up pack, containing some info booklets and lots of root trainers. Plans are underway!!! Some sweet chestnuts have also been planted in the tree nursery, and the remaining trees left in the community bed could do with being planted in it too.

Love the idea Carmel, i think taking on the newly ploughed community bed would be a great spot for it
