Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Foxwell Drive's Tiny Forest was planted on 28 January 2021 by local contractors (in line with Covid restrictions). It is a curved shape that follows the road and is adjacent to the A40. This Tiny Forest was funded by the OVO Foundation, in collaboration with Oxford City Council. There is an outdoor classroom area that can be used by both schools and local residents.
