Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Swindon's first Tiny Forest was planted on 11 March 2021 and was funded by MINI Electric, in collaboration with South Swindon Parish Council. It was planted by MINI apprentices, local contractors and school children from East Wichel Community Primary School (with social distancing in place). Sarsons stones from East Wichel Park have been placed in a large stone circle, encompassing the Tiny Forest and there are benches all around the forest for people to meet up and spend time in nature.
