Join us in the Forest
I am here today because of hope. There’s a lot of despair and fear and what we are doing here right now is amplifying children’s voices, artist’s voices, showing a future that’s possible – not just necessary. This is the kind of world I want to live in. It’s not even an individual identity, it’s a community identity. It feels like we are one and becoming much bigger than ourselves through this creative activism.
Volunteer tree guardian, Earth Day March, April 2023
Saturday 25th November is Tree Charter Day, A day when we celebrate the value and importance of trees and woods to people. Each year we hang our incredible Fantastical Forest, co-created with communities across our region, in the magnificent Beech Avenue in Wandelbury Country Park to mark this day.
CCI has been making this ever-growing collection of beautiful muslin hangings with artists and children over the last 4 years. We share elements of the Forest at events throughout the year and this year marched it with a team of 82 volunteers to Westminster on Earth Day. This day is a chance to see the full collection locally in this stunning natural setting. More on the Forest here.
Free to access from 10am to 3pm. All welcome.
Please come and say hello.
This event will be cancelled in the event of heavy wind or rain - please check the Wandlebury website for any updates.
