Thursday 20th June 2019, 6.30pm

Meet the Oak Tree

Tortworth Arboretum


This session will be focussed around the beautiful oak trees at Tortworth Arboretum, from the veteran English oaks to the exotic varieties. Learn about the habits and traits of the species, how to identify them and where ours come from.

We will use the oak as the focus of our day to learn how to experience nature more closely, using all of our senses.

From folklore to medicinal and edible uses, get to know this amazing tree just as the flowers are emerging.

We will start the session with a tea and then walk through the woodland discovering the trees, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions. We will end the session with a short meditation.

This event is suitable for over 16's, we ask that you do not bring dogs with you if possible.

Directions: Please head to GL12 8HH on sat nav, towards the Tortworth Court Hotel. As you turn on to the driveway to the hotel, after a couple of passing places you will come to a green metal gate set back on the right hand side just before a stone building. Turn into this gate and park up.
