Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Nottingham's first Tiny Forest was planted on 6 November 2021 by local residents and volunteers. It is located in Bulwell 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.
