Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Glasgow's fifth Tiny Forest was planted on 22 October 2021 by local residents and volunteers, alongside employees of BlackRock. It is located in Govan and was funded by BlackRock, in collaboration with Glasgow City Council who provided the land. This Tiny Forest is one of four that have been specially planted in Glasgow ahead of COP26.
