Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Frome's first Tiny Forest was planted on 13 November 2021 by local residents and volunteers. It is located in Egford Lane Park and was funded by DEFRA, in collaboration with Frome Town Council who provided the land. There is an outdoor classroom area that can be used by both schools and local residents.
