Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Bristol's first Tiny Forest was planted on 4 February 2021 by a small group of local volunteers from the local One Tree Per Child project. It is located in Trym Valley park, Southmead and was funded by the OVO Foundation, whose headquarters are also in Bristol, in collaboration with Bristol City Council, who provided the land. There is an outdoor classroom area that can be used by both schools and local residents.
