Year 7, 8 and 9 geographers have been involved in planting a hedgerow with some saplings kindly provided by the woodland trust. 233 saplings have been planted and we will be keenly monitoring their growth. Climate change, agriculture and urbanisation are all driving many species to extinction within the UK and planting hedgerows provides habitats and improves biodiversity as well as doing our own little bit to combat climate change. Anyone can apply for free tree packs from the woodland trust and this is a great community project; there is more information here: https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/plant-trees/in-your-community/. If you have some land or know of some land that could be turned over to woodland then the Geography department would love to work with you to make that happen.
