This year’s BOSF Conference took on a different look as the two afternoon sessions meant that members had the chance to learn more about, and take part in, different activities carried out in Parks. The morning session involved speakers from several organisations and also gave delegates the chance of having ‘just a minute’ to champion their own group.
Afternoon practical sessions varied from learning about the technical equipment that the Tree Officers use to determine the health/stability of a tree, to learning about green wood working. Also available were workshops to help with event organisation and health and safety assessment.

The BOSF Conference always offers the chance for Friends groups to connect with Birmingham Trees for Life and also an opportunity for us, as an organisation, to network with the various BCC Parks employees and interested organisations…….as well as enjoying a hearty lunch and cake!!
