Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Doncaster's first Tiny Forest was planted on 25 March 2021 in the grounds of Scawsby Saltersgate Infant School. The forest was funded by Doncaster Council and will be used regulalry by the students, as part of their forest school classes. The design features a path that encourages people to walk through the forest, ending up in the outdoor classroom area, with benches surrounding a pond.
