Loop: Save The Planet

  • Lesley A @Lesley4 Frant updated 14 days ago

    A nice idea.

    Every household in our village has just been given a young wild cherry tree to plant - either in their own garden or in a public place in and around the village (guidance to be given). Such a lovely idea and to know that in years to come the village will be blossom filled every spring is a great thought. Our village society has masterminded this. They have also planted many other trees in and around the area. A great way to save the planet.
