Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Loughborough's first Tiny Forest was planted on 11 November 2021 by local school children, residents and volunteers. It is located in Woodbrook Way and was funded by DEFRA, in collaboration with Nottingham City Council who provided the land. There is an outdoor classroom area that can be used by both schools and local residents.
