People make places great. We all have a stake in the towns, villages and communities of Kirklees.
A bid for 105 fruit foraging trees to provide perimeter cover and soft security for the properties that border the southern boundary. 135m2 of bark chipped pathway will be created to allow access for the foraging and fruit trees. These will be boarded by timber boards and lined with weed-proof material. the boards will be held in place with wooden stakes. The foraging trees will not be protected using tree tubes, the local rabbit population has been decimated by a combination of myxomatosis and intestinal disease. However, the fruit trees will be protected by tree tubes and held in place by bamboo stakes.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
A community foraging resource, enhancing community collaboration and spirit, biodiversity, engagement with the outdoors and nature, mitigating against the cost of living crisis and climate change.
Steps to get it done:
Benefitting physical and mental health of the residents of the local area, by encouraging people of all ages, and backgrounds to get out into nature, contribute to upkeep/harvesting, encourage increased intake of fruits, greater understanding of nature, improved mental health through positive action and community involvement.
