James McKay, manager of the Bioenergy CDT, will be appearing on BBC Look North, talking about an exciting tree-planting project in the Harrogate area.
James is a board member of Long Lands Common Community Benefit Society, which has been set up to raise £300k to buy an area of farmland to convert into a nature reserve – a community-owned woodland.
It is unique in its size and ambition, and the society are well on the way to raising the required funding through offering shares to members of the local community. More than 30,000 trees will be planted. Visit the Long Lands Common website for more information.
