The Tiny Forest planted at City Of Leicester College is one of 6 planted Leicester City funded by the Local Authority Treescapes Fund 2023. Five of these Tiny Forests will be planted in schools across the city, in partnership with Leicester City Council, as part of their Sustainable Schools programme. Each of these Tiny Forests will include a classroom area with benches to encourage classes to learn in a natural environment.
