Wow… what a great idea! The British Council for Culture and Tourism is planting a forest in the city of Kirkham in order to provide woods for crafts and bio-fuels. The trees, which will be harvested every five to six years, and will provide wood for local craftspeople.
The trees will also help fight climate change, enhance the environment, provide additional leisure opportunites, and also serve as an educational asset for the school children of the area. This is a wonderful way to make crafts environmentally conscious, and something I hope the government here in the United States takes note of.
