Planting dates 2023

Public planting days at Shakespear for 2023 are 18 June,16 July & 20 Aug.

Please note that this year you must book so the Council can manage numbers. You can easily do this online by following these links: 18th June, 16th July, 20th August

If you subsequently decide not to go please cancel your ticket to make it available to someone else. If the weather is bad enough to cancel, you’ll get an email message.

This year groups of 10 or more may also have their own planting days by arrangement, preferably during the week. Please complete this form to propose a date (this is not for public planting days).

Planting is from 10am to 1pm, and followed by a free BBQ.  Follow signs at the park entrance to planting site.  Dress for the weather and wear closed footwear suitable for a muddy slope.  Please watch the weather forecast,  but planting usually goes ahead regardless of the weather (if in doubt check our facebook page). Gloves and spades are provided, so please leave your spade at home to reduce the biosecurity risk from transferring soil .
