Story

The Nottingham Open Spaces Forum is launching an ambitious 100+ year project, 'Sherwood Forest - The People's Forest' re-connecting Nottingham City and the Shire with the oaken heart of the iconic Sherwood Forest.

Led by NOSF Trustee, Sarah Manton and, of course, Robin Hood for the 21st Century, Ezekial Bone , we will harvest acorns from The Major Oak and other tree species native to Sherwood Forest to grow saplings to be planted in a spiral of 'Minor Oaks' in parks, school grounds and other open spaces from the city centre outwards, creating a circular forest around the city and out into the county. This planting will be a trigger for building copses, starting forest schools and creating a mix of habitats for nature to survive and wildlife to thrive.

Our ambition is to build community partnerships for the teaching of environmental and rural skills in all our schools and green our grey streets, extending the legacy of Sherwood Forest for hundreds of years to come.
