Care about the planet this Valentine's month – instead of sending cards this year, plant some trees. 

Set a date and come along to our Young People's forest with your loved ones - create memories whilst you plant some trees together.

Planting a tree is a gift that will last a lifetime and the perfect way to bond with your perfect someone.

There will be music playing and everyone under 21 will get a voucher for a drink and snack. Further refreshments are available to buy for those over 21.

Follow the Young People's Forest on Instagram.com/YPFMead for more events and how to get involved. 

Don't Forget

Please dress appropriately for the weather and for grassed fields.

If you have a spade, please bring it with you but we will have a number of spades available for you.
