This month's Tree Quotation

 “The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity... and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.”

The Green Light Trust

The Green Light Trust have recently revised their whole web site.


You may find the information below, about the educational work of the Trust, a useful way in to working together with Green Light...

"We run a number of school programmes for children and courses for adults working in education, all with 3 clear aims:

Environmental education for all


Most of our schools programmes can be tailored for children of all ages and abilities, and our community projects are open to everyone - so far our work has touched the lives of over 90,000 children and adults.


Engaging and interactive

learning experiences


We include practical and theory work in all our education programmes. This combination of 'hands clean' and 'hands dirty' learning makes our sessions fun, engaging and memorable.


Lifelong bonds between

people and nature


We see education as a long term solution to environmental issues. By building strong connections between communities, schools, businesses and nature we can make a lasting difference."
