Tiny Forest coming to Corby’s Oakley Vale: Community Eco Day Event

A free Eco Day event is being held in Oakley Vale on Friday 23rd February from 10:00am to create a brand new ‘Tiny Forest’.

Working in collaboration with the North Northamptonshire Council Grounds Maintenance Team, we are inviting local residents from the Oakley Vale community of Corby to come along and take part.

Everyone is welcome to help with tree planting, build bug hotels and receive forestry workshops from our friends at the Nene Rivers Trust.

Located in the Dunnock Road green space of Oakley Vale, this Tiny Forest project aims to enhance the local ecosystem while also contributing to natural flood management efforts in the area.

We are aiming to plant around 750 trees, providing numerous benefits to the environment and the community!

Hot food will be available to keep participants energised during the planting session.  Talks will then take place at the Oakley Vale Community Centre from 1pm, from experts at the Nene Rivers Trust. Our flood resilience expert, Mary Long-Dhonau, – AKA ‘Flood Mary’, is also joining us on the day and happy to answer any questions relating to flood awareness, resilience and recovery.

Everyone is very welcome – please join us!
