Our Current Projects
UK Community Initiative, Tree Guardians – Micro Nurseries
Tree Guardians pledge to nurture and tend native tree seeds for two years, in their gardens, balconies and windowsill. To grow flourishing saplings which will deepen their relationship and practical experience of growing trees along with learning what the benefits each tree species offers to the environment including communities and people.
This initiative is about creating a web of micro nurseries throughout the UK. Where after two years of guardianship the saplings will be part of local community planting projects and weaving deeper stewardship qualities between Tree Guardians and saplings.
Tending seeds at home offers an opportunity for all people within our communities to contribute to regenerating rural, urban as well as community environments.
We chose to champion Native Tree Species as within a woodland, hedgerow or on land biodiversity is also affected by whether the main tree species are native to Britain. Non-Native Trees are often uninviting to native species of invertebrates, which have not evolved to feed on them. Increased biodiversity can be found where there are native tree species along with the tree species having adapted over years to climate and environmental variability.
Part of this initiative is to invite people to pause and observe trees where they live and how the trees inspire creative expression whether it is through poems, music, songs, movement or art and to share these with wider communities.

You are invited to these conversations where revolutionary speakers bring powerful voices for Nature and Earth. As life shifts, we have invited spiritual and ecological leaders, pioneers and advocates to talk about how our return to nature will support our evolving world.

Trees and biodiversity habitats are part of our family. These sentient beings thrive with tending, nurturing and communication.
FotT recognises that planting trees does not mean we will co-create a flourishing natural world for future generations; it is only part of the solution. Tree Stewardship weaves in watering, tending and management in the way of looking after the aging trees, support for the younger trees and learning how to still ourselves as stewards to listen to nature and its wisdom and knowing.
Through sharing the experience and knowledge of wise peoples the talks offered are to inspire, to create a curiosity for people to co-create community led base groups to support their local natural environment.
