T&G Planting Weekend 27-28th October 2018

BFT Events, Talla & Gameshope

Help us plant native trees at the Trust’s newest site for ecological restoration. This is our fifth annual planting weekend at Gameshope, and the trees are doing well from the previous weekends. Meet at Talla Linnfoot on Saturday 27th (or Sunday 28th October) at 9.30am. Grid Ref NT134202, on the unclassified road between Cappercleuch (A708) and Tweedsmuir (A701).

Volunteers are welcome on either or both days. We will be based at the bothy again which will be used for cooking, socialising in the evening (fancy bringing an instrument or two?) and of course has some sleeping space. There are also lots of camping areas available around the bothy. The walk to the bothy is approximately 30mins.

This Autumn we will be planting willow and birch, with a bit of oak, up stream from the bothy. It will be possible to choose to work on gentle or more challenging terrain.
