Sunday 27 January, 2019, 2.00.pm. Winter Tree Identification Walk at Prospect Park

When the trees are standing bare in Winter, can you identify an Oak from a Beech? Yes you can! Anna Iwaschkin,walks designer, and the Reading Tree Wardens will take us round this beautiful park with stunning views as we learn the basics of Winter Tree Identification. Wrap up warm and waterproof, wear sensible stout shoes and shake off January at the same time! It is likely to last about an hour or so depending on the weather. You can always stop off for a hot drink at The Mansion House afterwards! N.B. Whatever the weather, we will confirm the status of the walk both here and on Facebook by 11.00. am on the morning of the walk. Please check before setting out. STOP PRESS - the walk is now fully booked but if you want to check at the last minute for a place, contact us at rtwn2011@gmail.com


Tuesday 12 February, 10.00.am. onwards. Tree planting event at Hartland Road

We are very grateful to have received funding from Trees for Cities to enable our volunteer tree planters, in partnership with Reading Borough Council, to have 30 trees to plant and finish last year's plantings on Hartland Road. If you would like to join our tree planting team, contact us at rtwn2011@gmail.com.

Saturday 13 April, 10.00.am.-3.00.pm. Beanpole Day plant and small tree sale at Caversham Court Gardens

Last year we had a great day and sold out of plants! Please do keep this date in your diary to come along and support our stall. This is our main fund raiser of the year and we hope you will grow some plants or split plants to donate, which can be dropped off before the day. Dropping off points round town will be named nearer the day. If you haven't got a garden, please consider buying and donating a box of plants or just putting a small donation in the donations box.
