One Hull of a Forest (OHOF) a PATT Foundation initiative, completed its third annual planting season April 2023 with strong growth all around. With the help of the Green Task Force comprising military veterans, volunteers, schools, corporates and a golf club, 65,646 saplings were planted August 2022 to April 2023 in Hull and the East Riding. This adds hugely to OHOF’s first planting season, 2020/21, when 7,750 saplings were planted and in its second planting season, 2021/22, when 23,900 saplings were planted.
Projects completed in the third planting season included Endike Primary School 360 saplings, Manor Farm 9,000 saplings, Queens Green Canopy Pickering Park 1,178 saplings and British Army Defence School of Transport Leconfield 1,656 saplings. OHOF continues its work during the summer months with the promotion of community environmental stewardship. In 2022 it held a successful art exhibition opened by OHOF’s Patron, Emma Hardy MP, at the Prospect Centre with contributions from school students, fine art students and professional artists, which attracted national media attention for unexpected reasons – https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/gobsmacked-artist-finds-face-jesus-28655417. This year we will have Through The Eyes of a Veteran to be held November 2023.
As for the next planting season 2023/24 the OHOF/PATT Nursery, on the outskirts of Hull, already has 52,000 saplings ready for our communities to show by doing that we care for the environment in Hull and the East Riding.
