How many trees can you name? Do you recognise a tree variety from its leaves, nuts or seeds? I think we all wish we had better knowledge of our natural surroundings, and this month could give you the chance to get to know your green neighbourhood giants a little better!
“To be without trees would, in the most literal way, to be without our roots.” ― Richard Mabey
‘Seed Gathering Season’ was launched by The Tree Council 22 years ago as a way of all of us coming together to help to save the trees of the future. The festival runs from September 22nd to October 22nd this year, and is a super opportunity for families, friends and communities to come together and gather seeds, fruit and nuts, to ensure our trees keep growing!
This is the perfect time to set to work before tree planting season in the winter, and the ideal time too to walk amongst the trees and possibly even give them a hug on the way … we know how good that is for us!
It has been well researched that being in nature offers us a sense of mental and physical wellbeing, just the simple act of breathing in the fresh air and walking in green surroundings can do absolute wonders for the spirit! But ‘Seed Gathering Season’ also offers the chance to pass over the feeling of wellbeing to our beloved trees too, after all they deserve it, they are helping to keep us all alive with their storage of carbon and reducing of pollution …thank you trees!
So why not take this time to gather, nurture and love our trees of the future…you never know you may learn a thing or two too!
