Trees project for inner city

Have your say

schools and volunteers in 10 inner city areas including Sheffield will be learning all about food produced by trees.

The project has been funded with a £195,000 grant from Local Food, a £57.5 million funding programme supported by the Big Lottery Fund.

The Trees for Food initiative is being run by the charity Trees for Cities, and aims to inspire people to engage in producing local food, particularly those who face barriers such as lack of green space in the areas where they live.

The money will be used to plant 6,000 fruit and nut trees, and to organise practical workshops offering skills in planting and harvesting.

Details of the areas of Sheffield where the scheme will target have not yet been set.
