Hoe, hoe, hoe! Merry Christmas!

This year, we’re putting up a Christmas tree with a difference. Actually, 203 of them to be exact...

Instead of post­ing Christ­mas cards we thought we’d get our hands dirty and plant some trees on behalf of each and every one of the clients and sup­pli­ers on our data­base. That’s 203 of the 700 trees due to be plant­ed by Sow The City as part of a social enter­prise scheme in Greater Manchester.

Found­ed in 2009, Sow The City helps to cre­ate green­er spaces in school grounds, com­mu­ni­ty sites and pub­lic parks. As this is our home­town, we thought what bet­ter way to say Mer­ry Christ­mas than to join the plant­i­ng team at Wil­low Farm in Urmston.

We hope you’ll agree it’s a great way to do our bit for the envi­ron­ment while deliv­er­ing a dif­fer­ence to local folk. Sow The City choose areas that will flour­ish from the health and well-being ben­e­fits of nat­ur­al wood­land spaces, mak­ing use of brown­field sites and wasteland. 

As well as cre­at­ing nicer places to live and work, plant­i­ng native species ben­e­fits local wildlife and sup­ports bio­di­ver­si­ty. The sites are all man­aged so that the saplings we plant will grow to matu­ri­ty to be enjoyed by gen­er­a­tions to come.

We’re busy get­ting a date in the diary for the big day and will update you on here soon. So, keep an eye on our social chan­nels for updates. In the mean­time, Mer­ry Christ­mas and a Hap­py New Year to all of our Foundry friends.
