Keelmans Way School, Tyne & Wear

Keelman’s way school were looking to encourage wildlife into their school grounds and develop the school site to become a natural environment for the local community/school to use. They are based in a Less Economically Developed area and it aimed to create a natural space to encourage students, staff, volunteers and the community to look after their own environment. They received 50 saplings from our charity in February 2019. Teacher Katharine Harbinson has provided this update and photos of their planting day below.

“The students loved being part of this project and this has helped expand our Forest Garden.

In planting these saplings we are creating a wild space for future generations and we really appreciated receiving them.”
