Celebrating all things Tree

You know we love trees here at the Forest of Marston Vale – planting trees and creating the Forest is the reason our Charity exists, making our little corner of the world a better place. We’re not alone in thinking that trees make life better though – the United Nations agree, which is why they’ve made Wednesday 21st March the International Day of Forests. This is a day for people around the world to celebrate trees and woodlands and all the great things they do for us.

This year we’re celebrating the International Day of Forests by making this special day a ‘Wear it Green Day’, asking individuals, schools, businesses (everyone actually!) to wear something green for the day and make a £1 donation to the Forest of Marston Vale. All the money raised will help us towards our target of planting another 5 million trees.

We’ve got 10 local schools sign up to Wear it Green Day - Church and Forest End Lower, Marston Vale Middle, Ridgeway, Houghton Conquest Lower, Shortstown Primary, Kimberley College, Thomas Johnson Lower, Shelton Lower and Flitwick Lower are all taking part, and we’re visiting all the schools before the day to get the students excited about all things tree!

Local business are also supporting the day – Blue Chip, XPO Logistics and Sainsbury DHL are all going green on the day and we’d love more of you to get involved. So whether you’re a one (wo)man band or a large business with lots of employees, join in with Wear it Green Day on 21st March and support your local Forest!
