As part of Earth Day Market Join Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust to find out more about the exciting Tree for Every Child in Perthshire project. PKCT's Discovery Learning and Engagement Officer will explore the reasons to why trees are important, provide a demo on how you could plant a tree and the tools used. Participants can get creative by adding their tree drawings to our art wall which expresses why people love trees!

Take away a bark rubbing sheet gift for lots more fun!

Activity suitable for ages 5+

As well as providing every child with the chance to experience tree planting and to make connections with their local nature, this project has a direct impact on conservation. Planting native species helps to combat both climate change and biodiversity loss – trees lock up carbon and a diverse woodland provides numerous benefits to other wildlife, supporting greater biodiversity. This is before we even mention all the added benefits that trees provide, sometimes known as nature-based solutions, such as flood prevention, reducing soil erosion, and cooling the surrounding air temperature.

Join us afterwards to explore the other activities and stalls at Earth Day Market 2023
