Festival Wood is going to be a brand new wood planted by volunteers from AGreenerFestival to symbolise music fans’ commitment to protecting the environment. The planned 5 acre wood will be planted on grazing land and will be a mix of native deciduous trees and we hope that the wood will be colonised by wild birds, mammals and insects as it grows.

Fans can contribute to Festival Wood by making any sort of donation. Just £3 will plant a tree! £5 will plant two! This isn’t an offsetting scheme – everyone should still try and reduce your environmental impact by using public transport, lift sharing, cycling or walking wherever you can, recycling and caring for the environment – but if you are going to a Festival this year why not go the extra distance and make a donation to help create Festival Wood? Absolutely anything helps and if we exceed the target we will just find more land and plant more trees! We are also hoping to be able to buy a biodigester to eat up waste food and other organic material and produce renewable gas in the process

TEXT  ‘FESTIVAL’ or ‘festival’ TO 82540 and you will plant a tree – £3 will be donated.

TEXT ‘GREENER’ or ‘greener’ to 82540 and you will plant two trees – this will cost you £5

The money you donate will be deducted from your phone – it’s called reverse billing. You can also send a cheque payable to ‘A Greener Festival Ltd’ and post to 8 Henley Prior, Collier Street, London N1 9JU. We are a formally constituted ‘not for profit’ company and everything helps. The more we get, the more we can do, so please help. THANK YOU.
