Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Glasgow University celebrated the planting of a Wee Forest on its campus. The planting ceremony took place on Wednesday 16 November, on a patch of land on the Garscube campus. The planting of the Wee Forest was funded by The Queen’s Green Canopy, a UK-wide project to plant over one million trees in honour of Her late Majesty The Queen. The ceremony was well-attended throughout the day by members of the University and Earthwatch Europe, people from the local community, as well as groups of children from local schools.
