Growing forests of opportunity

Riley's tree

The tree in the photo supports the Tree Charter principle of growing forests of opportunity. This tree is in a place where I played a lot as a child, we would make dens around the tree with fallen branches, and so through this, I became a lot more creative.

By Riley; Young artist for the Kite Trust's ‘Outside of the Box’ project, part of Fullscope’s Creative Care Programme
