🌳Plant a Tree for our Future – Deadline for ordering saplings extended to 24/9/21!

September 24 @ 9:00 am5:00 pm

🌳🌱The Home and Garden Sub-Committee, with the approval of the Executive, and in conjunction with The Woodland Trust NI, is spearheading a project to fight climate change!

This will be carried out in two parts:

  • All the Institutes will be asked to encourage and advise its members on how to reduce their carbon emissions – more of this later.
  • Plant a Tree campaign

We are asking every member of WINI to plant a tree in their own, a friends or family’s garden, or failing that in a pot!

🌳Look for space in your area for an Institute plantation/copse. Contact your local council, landowners, farmers, churches, schools, Road Service, etc. and tell them that you can supply saplings at 50p each.
🌳Christmas is coming up! Plant a sapling in a pot (crab apple and hazel will do well) and tie a ribbon around it – a perfect present!
🌳WI 90th celebration in 2022 – Find a spot where you can celebrate our 90th anniversary, leave a legacy for the future and strike a blow against climate change by planting saplings. Mark the copse with a plaque.
