Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Glasgow's fourth Tiny Forest was planted on 21 October 2021 by local school children, residents and volunteers. It is located in Govan and was funded by Bloomberg, 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.
