A VEGucational ramble, introducing you to the fabulous world of trees – hosted by the very affable Jeremy Prentice, the walk will be pleasurable and the content rich.
You know when you’re sitting beneath a magnificent tree and begin to wonder how does that tree do what it does? How does it get all that water to its leaves? Why do some bend in the wind and others not? Is it possible trees communicate to each other? Is a palm tree a true tree? Can one love trees and beautiful timber products too…?

With a mix of easily digested science, on-site interactive visuals and imaginative storytelling, this walk is for anyone and everyone wanting to understand trees more deeply.
