    Story

    We are now aware that the planet is in a climate and ecological crisis and many people are wondering what they can do to help to prevent it.

    In addition to other changes we can make in our lives, something we can do is to plant trees and hedgerows as they take carbon dioxide from the air, provide us with oxygen and help us achieve our aim of net zero carbon emissions as quickly as possible (as well as providing habitats for insects and animals that help increase bio-diversity)

    Transition Langport has started a project to plant 2020 trees for 2020 but to do this we need to buy trees.

    Please can you donate to help us buy trees.

    Thank you 💚

    Sometimes we just simply have to find a way. The moment we decide to fulfil something, we can do anything. And I’m sure the moment we start behaving as if we were in an emergency, we can avoid climate and ecological catastrophe. Humans are very adaptable: we can still fix this. But the opportunity to do so will not last for long. We must start today. We have no more excuses - Greta Thunberg

      Unsurprisingly tree planting events will be different this year. However, we're off to a good start by delivering 50 of the 1000 oak saplings we bought earlier this year (with your donations) together with 50 biodegradable guards and canes. They will be planted in the next few days at a local organic farm by the farm owners themselves. Thanks again for your donations. Without you this wouldn't be possible. Transition Langport 💚

      With the donations you've so generously given we bought 1000 oak tree saplings that have been 'heeled in' at the garden of one of our wonderful team members. We have also bought 880 biodegradeable tree guards, 1000 canes & 100 tubex guards & stakes (for the larger saplings) The planting season is nearly here & we have some planting sites lined up. When events are organised I will let you know so that we arrange covid-safe events to which you will be invited.
