About the project: The first planting took place in May 2022 with a second planting extending the site in October 2022. Children from St Issey primary school took part and continue to visit for tending days.

From the Landowner: “As the guardian of the ancient woods and land at Paradise I am grateful to be able to offer the children this most sensitive and profound nature connection programme. The children’s enthusiasm, joy and awe gave me a great sense of hope for all of our futures. To support and witness the beauty in what can be achieved when we work together in kindness and equality towards reciprocity for all living beings is a true blessing. I’m looking forward to the tending days in our newly planted forest and meeting the parents and carers at future gatherings at Paradise.” ~ Jeff Bell
