Latest update: 26 July now also open for booking – click here
Public planting days at Shakespear for 2020 are 21 June & 19 July (& maybe 26 July )
These events are going ahead as planned, and the limit on numbers attending has now increased to 200 each day. However this year you must book so the Council can meet covid19 requirements. You can easily do this online by following these links: 21 June, 19 July. Booking for 26 July is not yet open as that is being held in reserve in case all planting is completed before then.
If you subsequently decide not to go please cancel your ticket to make it available to someone else.
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 but feel free to bring your own.
