Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Scotland's first Tiny Forest was planted on 19 February 2021 in Avenue End Rd in Easterhouse, Glasgow. It was part-funded by the OVO Foundation and the Scottish Government’s Vacant and Derelict Land Fund. The Tiny Forest is in partnership with Glasgow City Council and the Seven Lochs Project and is being looked after by local volunteers and school children.
