Seeds2Trees was launched by Living Woods just last year to enable people of all ages, across local communities, to grow UK native trees from seed, for future use in our community focussed tree planting schemes.

We will:

  • helps to grow more trees; creating woodlands, and improving our natural environment.
  • enables the broader community to become part of the solution.
  • gives agency to people as we work together to tackle the climate and biodiversity crisis.

Our community of over 500 tree growers together will produce 50,000 new trees by Autumn 2026. A perfect opportunity for individuals, households, schools and community groups to ‘grow the change we need’.

Planting good seeds - sowing life. So happy to support this vital work.

Each year, we will supply seeds and growing kits free of charge, to our growers, in the November. These kits all come with instructions sheets, a regular newsletter, and a closed/private? Facebook group.

Our tree growers sow the seeds, nurture, transplant them, and nurture some more, over a two-year period of time. After this your saplings will be collected, and become part of our woodland creation programmes at Living Woods.

If you want to get involved as a tree grower – please register your interest. Please come back soon for a link to our new volunteer form.

We are proud to join the team and the growers in leaving this vital legacy for generations who follow us.

Each tree planted has the potential of absorbing a tonne of CO2, helping to create new woodlands and a healthier environment; investing in the future for the generations to come.

There are also opportunities for corporate sponsorship – could your business help to grow this project. Please contact Lara for more information.
