Green Print Forum gave us £1,600 for Nature First, a project to begin planting up the 17 acres of land working with children and elders and experts and locals
It was a mast year, a gift for us, for the ground under oaks was carpeted in thousands of acorns.
We collected acorns from oak trees near by, from Staverton Thicks, from Sotterly. We examined them, cut them open.
We soaked the acorns in water for a week, and when sprouting we planted them in trays, jay beak depth.
