Pocket Forests are a group that aim to reconnect people with nature. They make forests in small spaces, with their own special method of growing small biodiverse forests in urban areas. They run education workshops to rejuvenate soil and grow native trees, shrubs and woodland flowers to bring a forest ecosystem to your community. In short they help people create and care for their pocket forests, in the environments that often need it the most. Catherine is an award-winning writer, author and food critic who is concerned how our industrial food system has depleted nature and habitats for wildlife. She believes planting trees is something we can all do to help create ecosystems on our doorsteps and bring beauty into our cities.
