Stepping Stone Forests

We were delighted to welcome Stepping Stone Forests to our school.

A Stepping Stone Forest is a small, densely planted forest using native species of trees and shrubs. Due to the dense nature of the planting the trees and shrubs grow very rapidly. Stepping Stone Forests are inspired by a planting method first pioneered by world renowned botanist Prof. Akira Miyawaki.

In our school we prepared the soil for planted by laying cardboard and mulch.

We will return soon to plant trees to add to the beautiful natural trees which stand on our school grounds.

Have a look at the photograph’s below to see how much fun the children and adults had. Everyone in the community took part and played a role.
