Hard digging in Newtown!

The main discussion today, at this very urban open space, was what on earth had  been on this site before it became an open space…..as most of it was still there, just below the surface! Bricks, tiles, reinforced concrete. Our volunteers today had to cope with it all!

 

Lucky for us we had a good strong team of ‘planters’ from PHC and Deutsche Bank Birmingham, who still managed to dig the holes and plant 10 standard trees in just about an hour.

 

 

 

Today’s trees will add some Spring and  Autumn colour to the views of residents from the surrounding tower blocks, with both beautiful blossoms and Autumn berries.

Lots of hard work today,captured on our Google Album.
