A ’CLIMATE anxious mum’ is calling on families to join a mass community tree planting in Farnham Park next month.

Kaz Bishop, founder of Farnham-based community interest company Green up Britain, is set to host a family tree planting event on September 25 and 26 from 10am to 2pm in Farnham Park.

Taking action against the climate crisis, the company’s first initiative is to re-wild parts of Farnham.

Kaz said: "I’m just a mum with a bit of climate anxiety, scared of what I’m leaving my kids to in the future so I decided to do something about it."

To join the event, book online for £25 and families will receive a Hazel or Hornbeam tree and will be allocated 30 minutes to get planting.

Kaz added: "There will be a nature trail leading up to the site with music and crafts for the kids, and every child gets to name their tree so it should be a fun family event."

By the end of 2021, Green up Britain is aiming to plant more than 300 trees in and around Farnham, having already planted 100 trees so far. Once this is completed the company is setting its sights higher, hoping to expand and plant more trees across the UK.

Green up Britain is also holding a corporate event in Weybourne this October for companies.

"We’re hoping businesses will buy a larger amount of smaller, cheaper trees to offset their carbon footprint," said Kaz.
