Eco-friendly wreaths and decorations

We have probably helped around 100 people to make their own wreaths or decorations this Christmas 2020, using cuts of trees and plants from our community garden and local Hilltown Park. We’ve had workshops indoors, outdoors, during the day and the night!

We also foraged a little from Tentsmuir and the Law, there were many fallen trees after the Arwen storm hit Dundee in November. Scots pine, Atlantic blue cedar, Leylandii cypress, lemon cypress, laurel, holly, ivy, viburnum, dried hortensia, dogwood, willow, roses…were just a few of the plants we used.

We made a little leaflet with the basic steps you can print out double sided and have a look at the lovely wreaths people have made to decorate their homes and the park!
